Home of General Andrew Pickens

Hopewell Plantation was home to Revolutionary War General Andrew Pickens and his wife, Rebecca Calhoun Pickens. On July 16, 1785, Pickens acquired a grant of 573 acres on the Seneca River. By August 1, 1785, Pickens received an additional 560 acres that adjoined the property and encompassed the adjacent Treaty Oak Site.

The plantation home originally built for Pickens (circa 1785) was a small log home representative of a frontier pioneer home. Hopewell was substantially enlarged over time.

General Pickens, a lifelong politician, held significant positions including: U.S. Congressman (1793-1795), Federal Commissioner of Indian Affairs (1785-1802), S.C. Representative (1783-1788, 1796-1799, and 1812-1813), and S.C. Senator (1790-1791). Pickens represented South Carolina as one of the state's first congressmen in Philadelphia and negotiated the Hopewell treaties that established peace and friendship with the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw tribes.
