Kensington Mansion

An Antebellum Plantation Home in Eastover, South Carolina

We are sad to announce that the opening of Kensington Mansion will be delayed this year. Due to damage to the house and the surrounding park by the ice storm, we have decided to delay our March opening so that all necessary repairs and clean-up can be completed. We plan to re-open in June 2014. We will keep all our friends updated via facebook and on our website. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience this might cause our visitors.
