GEORGETOWN COUNTY RIVERS AND PLANTATION TOUR
As the site of the first European Settlement in North America (circa 1526) by the Spanish, to the third oldest English settlement in South Carolina (circa 1729), Georgetown is full of history, southern charm, legends, and ghost tales.
The next tour stop includes a visit to the grounds and building of Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church, one of the few original church buildings in South Carolina dating to the colonial period that is still in use today.
A guided tour takes you through the city’s historic district filled with colonial, revolutionary, pre-Civil War and Victorian buildings many of which house unique shops and restaurants. Of the more than 60 antebellum homes in Georgetown, the Kaminski House stands out as one of the most representative of the Georgian style of the era. Built overlooking the Sampit River, the Kaminski House is typical of the Low Country “single house” style of the mid-18th century. Your adventure includes a full tour of the interior building and it’s grounds.
After lunch, you will continue on to the plantation portion of our tour which includes Hopsewee Plantation (circa 1735), a beautiful example of local period architecture and furnishings, one the homes of Thomas Lynch, Jr., signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Hampton Plantation (circa 1700’s), owned by many notable families, including another signer of the Declaration of Independence, Henry Middleton Rutledge.
The tour includes a study of the buildings architecture and the evolution of the home’s history as well as personal insights into the life of the people that made up it’s history and called Hampton Plantation home.
