Isaac Hayne Tomb & House Site

This is the ancestral home, Hayne Hall, and burial ground of Colonel Isaac Hayne (1745-1781), a wealthy rice planter who fought for independence during the American Revolution.

Hayne was forced to sign the oath of allegiance to the British after the fall of Charleston in order to avoid being separated from his sick wife. When the British ordered him to bear arms for the King, he again joined the American forces and was subsequently captured by the enemy. His execution on the gallows by the British in Charleston aroused great indignation in both America and Europe.

The site is now maintained by the South Carolina State Park Service.
