Holiday decorations made it more special

The House is in a bit of an odd location - feels more commercial in the neighborhood than others in Charleston, but it had been recommended to me by a volunteer at another house... read more

We bought this ticket as part of a package with The Charleston Museum and the Heyward Washington House. This house had a 30 minute tour which was not the highlight of my trip. I think our guide was new; she didn't handle questions well. The staircase is magnificent (I couldn't believe we could actually walk up it!! so old!!) and... More

Short (half hour), but very informative tour covering family history, time period social history, and architecture/floor plan. Mix of period and specific family furnishings. Grounds are abbreviated (parcels sold since), but the locations of former outbuildings are indicated.

We visited this mansion as part of a package bought at the Visitors Center. My Daughter and I were the only 2 on our tour so we were able to ask many questions of David, our guide. He was very knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy talking about the history of the old home. He told us many facts about... More

Just across from the Visitor Center and SC Museum. Park in the garage by the Center. Rhett-Aiken is also near. Trolley leaves from Center. Architecture inside was very interesting and the furnishings first-rate.

This house is in the early Federalist style and, although very little in the house is from the original owners there are beautiful furnishings from the period. The house is within walking distance of the visitor's center. We got the combined ticket: Grayline Bus Tour and house tour and didn't see the point in just being dropped off at this... More

The House is in a bit of an odd location - feels more commercial in the neighborhood than others in Charleston, but it had been recommended to me by a volunteer at another house because of its special Christmas decorations. The Charleston Garden Club did the decorations and the greenery was all fresh!! Very unusual to find since this takes... More

The Joseph Manigault House was intresting! I was surprised to find that this house had a tour guide stationed in just about every room. Built way back in 1803, the Manigault’s were a wealthy family, the second richest in South Carolina, he inherited several rice plantations and over two hundred slaves from his grandfather in 1788. His first wife’s father,... More

I brought my wife to Charleston as she has always loved stories about the Òld South`. We went to the `Charleston Visitor Center`and drove around the area numerous times without success in finding parking. We decided to use the parkade beside the Hampton Inn. The cost for the entire day was $16. From here, you can easily walk all of... More
