We have a fantastic tour at Ashtabula from a very knowledgeable, informative, and engaging docent. The history of the property and the furnishings were wonderful to hear about and see.

Ashtabula Plantation in Pendleton, SC, is well worth the visit. In a nutshell: a piedmont plantation home from the early 19th century, minimally altered in the 20th c. with an unusual amount of antebellum antiques belonging to the families who resided there. If you are lucky to get a tour guided by Phyllis, you are in for an insightful visit.... More

I took a group of kids from a local school here on a field trip. The staff had different stations set up where the students learned about life during that time period.

The Christmas tours are the BEST! They take a page from previous owners diaries and do a reenactment in early December each year.
