Mepkin Abbey

An active Trappist monastery that welcomes both men and women retreatants. Daily visitors are welcome. The former plantation home of Henry Laurens, Congressional Constitutional president, and later to publisher and philanthropist Henry R. Luce and his wife, Clare Boothe Luce, the beautifully landscaped grounds overlook the Cooper River. Clare Luce commissioned famous landscape architect Loutrell Briggs to create Mepkins Gardens. In 1988, the gardens were renovated through the efforts of Nancy Bryan Luce, wife of Henry Luce III, and for whom the gardens are named. Enjoy the gardens at your leisure or a guided tour of the church. Reservations required for groups of 10+.
