Things to Do
From the Revolutionary War to 1971 this National Historic Landmark was privately owned. It is an 18th-century plantation home that not only provided refuge for women and children during the Revolutionary War, the rice fields surrounding the property hid Francis Marion when British troops arrived at Hampton Plantation in search of him. George Washington saved a tree here! The state of South Carolina acquired the home in 1971. It was in deteriorating condition, and the decision was made to take the opportunity of removing much of the damaged plaster to expose the construction aspects and craftsmanship of the builders of the 18th century.
