Overview
More
Hopsewee Plantation is an original lowcountry rice plantation on the North Santee Rive built between 1735 and 1740. Birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., Hopsewee is one of just 12 remaining birthplaces of Signers of the Declaration of Independence. The home has not been modified from its original design and is furnished with 18th and 19th century antiques. Two original slave cabins remain on the property. The guided tour explores the history of the Patriots and Planters who lived at Hopsewee while you explore the architectural features of the house from Attic to Cellar. Enjoy the hour long tour or just come for lunch in The River Oak Cottage Tearoom with Lowcountry favorites such as Shrimp and Grits, Pulled Pork, Soups and Sandwiches and our Southern Tea service modeled after a British Afternoon Tea.

We loved the house and really loved the restaurant. We would definitely recommend the fried okra. Our tour guide, Zenobia, was pleasant and informative.

Had so much fun, & the tea afterwards was the perfect ending! Each treat was better than the last, and the teas we both had were delicious as well. The owners were so accommodating and lovely to talk to. A terrific afternoon
