Lisa and Jack Towell unveiled their newest project, Pleasant Oaks Plantation, a premier boutique event venue in Liberty Hill, South Carolina. The beautiful farm is centrally located to Charlotte, North Carolina, and Camden, South Carolina and offers a one-of-a-kind experience for weddings, corporate events and milestone parties.
Set on 10 rolling acres, Pleasant Oaks is a place where the Towell family escaped from their life owning and operating a busy show stable for peace and quiet. Then, as Lisa and Jack renovated and filled the home with antiques and personal touches, it became a place they wanted to share with family and friends.
Now, in collaboration with event planner Gillian Valentine, Pleasant Oaks has become a full-service event venue that offers two different locations on the property for your event, based on your number of guests. Pleasant Oaks hosts events March-May and September–November each year.

The community of Liberty Hill has a rich history. Perched atop a high plateau among the countryside, the town was settled by migrators after the Revolutionary War. By 1858, the community was flourishing, with large plantations and land owners, making it one the richest communities in South Carolina. With the plateau enjoying a view of the neighboring counties, it became a sought-after location, and several of the original families still reside in Liberty Hill. Little has changed since its moment of prosperity, and it was recognized as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
