Tour the Hopsewee Plantation with DIHS

Posted By Bill Payer on Jan 25, 2024 | 0 comments


The Lowcountry is renowned for plantation tours….Middleton, Drayton, Boone Hall, Magnolia and more. But right up the road in Georgetown is another adventure you may want to consider. And we’re going to make it easy for DIHS members.

Built circa 1740, some 40 years before the American Revolutionary War, Hopsewee Plantation was one of the South’s major rice plantations and the birthplace of Thomas Lynch, Jr., one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

 

Sounds like a great opportunity for our next DIHS members event. DIHS board member Rich Dorval has worked with Hopsewee to put together what sounds like a fascinating experience ranging from first hand history to first class food!
