This was an exceptional house. They even let us take photos. Well preserved. Glad it was not destroyed in Civil War

Since we had just gotten the Charleston Heritage Passport about a block away, we decided to stop in here. As this was our first afternoon in Charleston, it was a nice way to ease into seeing all the historic homes on the passport. It was the least furnished and architecturally interesting of the homes we saw, so I'm glad it... More

A-must-visit attraction if you go to Charleston. Located right across from the visitor center. One of the oldest houses in Charleston. Can purchase a ticket that allows access to Charleston Museum and Heyward-Washington House also; a great value. House has been showcased on A&E. Beautiful Georgian architecture.

It was really interesting to hear the history of this house and two ladies of limited means bought the house to save it from demolition to make way for a car dealership in the 20th century. The Charleston Museum got the house circa 1935 and restored it to its former glory.

As a Northerner, I felt very well-treated throughout our southeast trip - except here. One guide in particular simply could not contain her bitterness and was obviously still fighting the war against those damn Yankees. Other guides were either slow as molasses or just plain uninformed. I've taken HUNDREDS of historical home tours in the US, UK, and bits of... More

The tour of the Manigault house was interesting and informative. If you got with a large group, it was hard to see some of the items of interest. I think the groups should be limited to small groups to allow everyone a better view..

This urban plantation was included on the Charleston Museum Combo Ticket and had the best guide of all. We ended up with a private and somewhat longer tour than expected. The guide explained provided the requisite history of the home, contents, construction and inhabitants., she went on to provide detailed contrasts between the lives of the urban plantation slaves and...

This home is a must see if you do home tours, it is lovely loaded with history and a great example of life in the time it was built. The tour guide knew her stuff and made this a rewarding 45 minutes.

Originally built in 1803, this home has both simplicity & elegance. It has a curving central staircase. The tour guide was good in giving us a nice historical prospective on who the Manigault's were and their contribution to Charleston's history. I was a little disappointed in that the tour is only 4 rooms.
