Union, Part 5 - Rose Hill Plantation| Palmetto Places

Kaltura

Rose Hill Plantation, once an 8,000 acre plantation located in Union, South Carolina, was once the home of secessionist governor William Henry Gist, one of the signers of the secession document, before the Charleston convention, and the American Civil War. After the deaths of William Henry Gist and his wife, the home became rentable to tenant farmers. The ownership of the house would eventually pass to the U.S. government, where the house fell into ruin. The plantation became a state park after the home's restoration in 1960, and is a present-day popular tourist attraction.
