Main House – Whitewater Santee

Main House

Overlooking the banks of the East Branch of the Cooper River, Middleburg is highlighted by the Main House. The home was built in 1697 and still stands as the oldest structure in the southeastern United States. Experience the original home built by Benjamin Simons and immerse yourself in over 300 years of history.

The Main House has stood as the most prominent manmade feature of Middleburg for more than three centuries. The home has carried on through multiple periods of American history and recalls the days of the Province of Carolina, nearly 80 years before the birth of the United States.


The Main House at Middleburg is currently available for booking by the room during special event Bed & Breakfast bookings and as part of a full facility rental.
