Antebellum home on former 1275-acre farm estate

This two-story antebellum home sits on property where the first Jersey and Hereford cattle were introduced into South Carolina. Built around 1825 by Lewis Ladson Gibbes and his wife, Maria Drayton Gibbes, the home was part of a 1275-acre farm estate. Today, the site encompasses ten of the original acres and also includes a two-story brick building that dates back to 1790 and is thought to have housed the first licensed tavern in the Upstate of South Carolina. Ashtabula is open for tours and hosts several special events and reenactments throughout the year.
