Redcliffe State Historic Site
Description - Completed in 1859, Redcliffe was the home of South Carolina Governor James Henry Hammond and three generations of his descendants. Today, the mansion retains many of its original furnishings and works of art, offering visitors a chance to learn about the lives of the Hammond family. The 369 acres of grounds surrounding the home remain heavily wooded, as James Henry Hammond intended, providing an opportunity to enjoy the many historic plantings on the site and the memorable lane of magnolias lining the entrance to the estate. Redcliffe is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Tours of the home are available. Contact the park for exact times. The park also offers a moderate three-mile nature trail, and fishing in the 2 acre lake.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities at Redcliffe include touring the historic home and grounds, hiking the nature trail and fishing in the small lake.

Climate - South Carolina generally has a temperate climate, with cool winters and warm, humid summers. Snow and freezing temperatures are possible in the winter at the higher elevations. Thunderstorms are possible throughout the year but most common in the spring and summer. Tropical storms occasionally strike the coast during the hurricane season.

Location - This state historic site is located at Beech Island, near Aiken and Augusta, Georgia. Redcliffe is located 3 miles southeast of Beech Island off US 278.
