This 18th century rice plantation serves as a relic to a different time in the area's rich history. The old plantation home was the birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a prominent figure in South Carolina history. The beautiful main house and out buildings are nestled on the North Santee River where it flows into the historic port of Georgetown. Tours are available during regular business hours year round, and by appointment for large groups or special occasions. The on-site Tea House is a great place for a refreshing drink and light lunch.
