Step back to the colonial era while exploring a 12-room Georgian-style mansion and remnants of a rice plantation at the Hampton Plantation State Historic Site. The house is preserved, not restored, and not furnished. Knowledgeable docents offer a wealth of historic and anecdotal information. When President George Washington visited here in 1791, he learned a great live-oak tree was to be cut down for views. He asked that it not be cut, and today you can stand alongside the tree now known as the Washington Oak. There is an admission fee for tours of the mansion. It is free to stroll the grounds and walk 2-miles of trails.
