Visit Hopsewee Plantation, Birthplace of South Carolina Signer of the Declaration of Independence Thomas Lynch. Hopsewee Plantation is located on the beautiful North Santee River, just 48 miles north of Charleston. You will travel in Chicora Tours’ luxurious, 12 passenger van on the Ocean Highway through Mt. Pleasant, Awendaw, McClellanville and over the Santee Delta.
This historic house was constructed between 1735 and 1740 and has hardly changed since it was completed. It has been owned by several families over the last two and a half centuries. Take a journey back in history as the present owners offer historic guided tours. Your tour will depart from the Charleston Visitors Center at 375 Meeting Street and arrive at Hopsewee Plantation. You will experience the Historical Landmark House tour, lunch in the River Oak Cottage Tearoom, a presentation by Hopsewee’s Gullah historian or grounds tour with a Hopsewee historian and conclude the experience with Wine by the River.
