1805 plantation once the site of treaties between the US and Native Americans

In 1784, Revolutionary War hero Andrew Pickens purchased 573 acres along the Seneca River, on which he built Hopewell. General Pickens lived in the house with his family until 1805. During that time Pickens served on a commission to make treaties with the Southern Indians, and Hopewell became the site of numerous treaties made between the United States and the Cherokee, Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations. The house served as a residence for many years and is now a property of Clemson University. Exterior viewing only.
