Hampton Plantation House, Mount Pleasant South Carolina

Date added: April 19, 2016 Categories: South Carolina Plantations & Farms House Mansion

About 1735 Noe Serre, grandson of a Huguenot emigrant, built a substantial plantation house on Wambaw Creek. This house passed to Daniel Kuger Horry when he married Judith, daughter of Noe Sorre. Horry squared the house by adding another pair of rooms on the second story and large extensions at each end. One of these is taken up by the large ballroom. For the sake of symmetry false windows have been used in the outside of these additions. About 1790, the deep portico was added, and George Washington was the first guest to pass through its tall colonade.
