Town of Yemassee

The town of Yemassee, one mile from Interstate 95, was named after an Indian tribe. Part of Hampton County, this land of deep forests, swamps and ponds is today famous to many sportsmen, hunters and fishermen for its exceptional hunting grounds and excellent river and creek fishing.

Evidence of Native American’s, the area's first residents, can still be seen through such fascinating river names as the Salkehatchie, Combahee and the Coosawhatchie. Attractions include antebellum plantations, historic churches, cemeteries, and the Lowcountry Visitors Center and Museum, housed in the historic Frampton Plantation House. Yemassee hosts an annual Shrimp Festival in September, celebrating the abundance of shrimp caught locally each year.
