Woodburn and Ashtabula Historic Homes are national treasures located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful upstate South Carolina. The families who built and lived in, or on the grounds of, these two homes had a hand in shaping the history of the Carolinas and the South as a whole. Come experience the buildings, the artifacts, and the memories they left to future generations at these two very different historic sites.
