Birthplace: Hopsewee NHL, SC

Visited: 10/26/18

Log Excerpt: "We continued to Hopsewee Plantation NHL, also in the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor. It was the birthplace of Thomas Lynch, Jr., a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and served as a Lowcountry rice plantation. We got a personal 10:00 tour by a very good guide, and after a film in one of the original slave quarters we viewed the grounds and richly-furnished home. It was slightly odd in that the home is still lived in by the current owners, and we in fact caught a glimpse of the man."
