­The Historic Plantation House Hotel is the single largest property overlooking the historic town square in Edgefield SC, a village known for its southern small-town charm. However, the quant appearance of this small historic town bellies the fact that it is adjoining one of the most dynamic growing regions in the South.

The National Wild Turkey Federation National Headquarters is located just outside Edgefield and boasts over 10,000 annual visitors per year to its state-of-the-art Hunting Heritage Center. Many of these visitors must commute up to 30 miles for lodging and would see the availability of a hotel a mere three miles away a necessary convenience. Please see the letter of cooperation from the NWTF CEO, Becky Humphries, (located below under "Download more information").

The center of the bustling Augusta GA /Aiken SC Metro Area with the Master’s Tournament and Horse/polo country lies only 30 miles to the southeast and with its regional population of 590,772 people, acts as the primary economic driver for the community.
