During the Spanish rule, 3000 acres of land was granted to Reliegh Self on which the original Blythewood was built before the Civil War, and became a working cotton plantation.
The home was burned and in 1885 Daniel Hardy Sanders rebuilt Blythewood in all of its original splendor. It took three years to complete this 18-room Colonial Revival Style Mansion. The architects were Drake & Anderson of New York. John James Dalstrom of New Orleans was the contractor.
Blythewood not only is open for tours but also hosts Bed and Breakfasts (by appointment), weddings & receptions, luncheons, candlelit dinners, parties, retreats and more!
