About Flowertown Bed & Breakfast
The main house was built in 1889 by Benjamin and Irene Greig. Benjamin served in the Confederate army during the Civil War. Benjamin Greig died in 1904 and his widow remained in the house till her death in 1939. The house sold several times and was bought in 1943 by Herbert E. Jessen who was a South Carolina State Senator for 8 years. The Jessen family sold their home in 1993 to Veronique & Greg Elam, who transformed it into Flowertown Bed and Breakfast.
Veronique and Greg Elam
After four years of extensive interior and exterior renovations, Veronique & Greg Elam opened the Flowertown B&B in April 1997. They shared a passion for flowers and gardening, and from bare grounds many garden rooms were born at Flowertown Bed and Breakfast, one area at a time. There is a Koi pond surrounded by giant calla lillies, garden rooms with serene fountains, winding pathways with benches and pergolas for relaxation. Greg taught himself the art of bonsai after a trip to Japan and the newest addition is a meditative bonsai tree garden under a new pergola.
