Overview

The Redcliffe Plantation State Historic Site is an old plantation home nestled in Aiken county and makes up a 369-acre property where visitors flock to this day. The historic site was completed in 1859, and upon entering, guests are often astonished at the sight of a magnificent lane of 145-year-old magnolia trees that emphasize the grandeur of the property. A descendant of the former congressman and governor donated Redcliffe to South Carolina in 1973. A gift shop found in the old plantation home makes numerous souvenirs and books available for purchase. From the top floor of the Greek Revival house, visitors can see the Savannah River valley, where visitors may catch a glimpse of the clock tower found in downtown Augusta, a dozen miles away. Whether you want to exploring the preserved slave quarters, visit and photograph the heirloom garden, or picnic on the huge lawn, this is the place for you.
