Ralph Izard inherited The Elms after is father´s death in 1749. During the Revolution he provided financial support to the Patriot cause. He also served as a foreign diplomat, advisor to George Washington, and US Senator. The Elms, which remained in the Izard family for generations, was established here by Izard´s great-grandfather (also named Ralph), who settled in SC in 1682.
