Glen Loula - Glen Loula is a 1750 farm updated by Gov. James Hammond as a wedding gift to his son. Never a grand place, Glen Loula is a step back in time to a substance farmstead now operated as a lily farm by Jenks Farmer and his family. Outbuildings and barns have been updated to suite the needs of a specialty mail order nursery but retain the look of a 1930’s farm.
The lily fields include fall flowers and vegetables, donkeys roam the pastures and pecan trees provide fruit and wood for amazing smoked veggies in the fall.
Redcliffe - Redcliffe Plantation, completed in 1859 was once the home of James Henry Hammond, three generations of his descendants, and numerous African-American families like the Henleys, Goodwins, & Wigfalls who worked at the site as slaves and later free men and women. Now one of the many historic plantations South Carolina has opened to the public, this site symbolizes the ambition, wealth and power of James Henry Hammond a successful cotton planter, congressman, governor and senator, who spent his life defending the southern plantation system and his status within it. Just one of several historic plantations South Carolina is known for, Redcliffe provides a setting for exploring the experiences of the enslaved, as well as the larger institution of slavery and reflects the historical experiences and impact of the white and black families who lived and worked at the site. The extant slave quarters, mansion, and iconic lane of magnolia trees planted in 1861 serve to highlight the plantation’s rich and varied history.
Camping available at Redcliffe from 5:00 P.M. Friday to 9:00 AM Saturday morning.
