Redcliffe Plantation – Beech Island, South Carolina

Four generations of Hammonds occupied this 1859 Greek-revival mansion. Governor Hammond’s great-grandson, John Shaw Billings (1898-1975), who served as the managing editor of Time and Life magazines, brought the Redcliffe mansion back to life in the 1930s. Today Redcliffe Plantation is managed by the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
