This small, compact, two-story house of cypress and brick was built in lower South Carolina by Paul de St. Julien on one of three land grants given to his French Huguenot grandfather by the Lords Proprietor. Designated as the most architecturally significant Huguenot House in an area that was to be flooded when the Santee River was dammed in 1941, the house was taken apart and carefully reassembled on the Clemson University campus. It was relocated again in 1994 to the South Carolina Botanical Garden. Hanover House is furnished with period antiques by the Spartanburg Committee of the South Carolina Society.
