A Riverfront Plantation Near Georgetown, SC - Est. 1734
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
Silver Hill Plantation is located on the Sampit River near the historic seaport of Georgetown, South Carolina. The plantation was established in 1734. Crops grown here supplied the local militia during the American Revolution and Union troops used the house during the War Between the States. After the war in 1865 the house remained abandoned but was so well built that it survived for over 130 years until it was restored to its original splendor by its present owner. The recent restoration is work of art. The house has been totally modernized and large porches were expanded to take in the beauty of the rice fields and landscaped grounds. The rooms are spacious and the views are spectacular.
