Rice Hope was established as a rice plantation in 1696
by the Huguenot, Daniel
Huger, then known as Luckins. This Charleston plantation prospered
along the tidal banks of the Cooper River when rice
was king in South Carolina.
Owned and operated by lowcountry natives.

The original house burned and was rebuilt in 1840. The present
sprawling 40 room mansion is the result of renovations and additions
made in 1929 by U.S. Senator John S. Frelinghugsen of New Jersey
who used the property as a hunting lodge.
The formal gardens (est. 1795) were restored and enhanced in
the 1930s according to a design by noted landscape architect Loutrell
Under the canopy of ancient moss-draped live oaks, overlooking
the Cooper River, amidst camellias 200 years old, time seems to
stand still at Rice Hope.
We are located near other pre-Revolutionary plantations, chapels
and ruins, national forest, a monastery, state and county parks,
and 40 miles from historic Charleston, and the Atlantic beaches.
