Built in 1714, the Hanover House is a historic home in Clemson, South Carolina. It was built by a French Huguenot, Paul de St. Julien. He got the land from his grandfather, after the old man got it through a grant from the Lords Proprietors.

The Hanover House got its name after the House of Hanover. St. Julien named his estate after this historic family who claimed the throne in Great Britain to show his appreciation to England, who welcomed Huguenot refugees that were forced to flee France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes.

The Hanover House remained in the family of St. Julien?s descendants for the longest time until it was threatened. It was then moved to the campus of Clemson University and operated as a historic house museum under the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America.
