The mansion is the key to understand why Clemson exists today. Lovingly preserved it tells the story of the Clemson & Calhoun families. Conveniently located in the middle of the campus.

Fort Hill Plantation is a worthwhile stop if your in Clemson. The lady who answered all our questions and gave us the history of the house was very knowledgeable and did a great job. We really enjoyed our time there.
