Rose Hill Plantation – Union County, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Union County Photos  |  Rose Hill Plantation

Nestled along the Tyger River near Union, Rose Hill Plantation served as the South Carolina Governor’s mansion during William Henry Gist‘s time in office.

Photographer Ed Long writes, “Rose Hill Plantation, located in Union County, was the home of William H. Gist, known as a fire eater and the Secession Governor. Today it is a peaceful, serene place to visit with plenty of photo opportunities. I found it to be a very rewarding experience to walk among the rose gardens and grounds and to wonder what it was like to have lived in such a time and place as this during such a tumultuous time in our state’s history.”

My grandmother was born on the estate as daughter of the master carpenter during the 1858-60 renovations. It is my dream to be able to walk the grounds and see the house that she knew.
