Hampton Plantation near Georgetown, SC #history

Hampton Plantation
By Jeannette Holland Austin

Hampton PlantationThe Hampton Plantation is situated beside the lower Santee River, south of Georgetown, South Carolina. The actual construction of the house was probably begun about 1735 for Noah Serre, an early pioneer to the area. In those days, the center portion of the house was built first, with wings added later on. In this instance it was Daniel Huger Horry, the son-in-law of Serre, who enlarged the six-room structure. He has a two-story ballroom on one end and large bedrooms and sitting rooms on the other end. After a visit of George Washington, the six-column portico and impediment was added. Open to the public, it is located 8 miles north of McClellanville, off routes 17 and 857.
