We toured this site because we had passed it and thought it was beautiful. We were not mistaken. The home is spectacular. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and willing to let us take the time to really look at everything. We were also shown the second floor, which does not often happen, and were allowed to take non-flash photos.... More

We bought combo ticket from the Charleston Museum and took the 3:30PM tour this week. It was a cold rainy day, and the docent was prob tired (she held a water bottle and took a lozenge to sooth vocal cord? after giving tours all day long perhaps). Info was delivered in a rather flat manner, and she said bec the... More

This was the first house tour I took in Charleston, after visiting the Charleston Museum across the street. There were only three people on the tour; so I was able to ask as many questions as I would like. If you are a furniture and architecture fan - this place is going to be a real treat. The moldings around... More

This home is a good lesson demonstrating the luxurious lifestyle enjoyed by the slave owners during this unfortunate disgraceful era of human exploitation. First visit the Charleston Museum across the street from this house so that you will understand how the builders and owners of this house could live almost like royalty with fine furnishings and appointments unavailable to the...

I am an historic house freak, I must admit. This place is worth it for the ceiling trim moldings alone. The house is beautifully furnished with period antiques. Only 2 floors are viewable but they are worth it! The guide was full of great information and thankfully, photography was allowed without a flash.

This was part of my grey line door: good deal: shuttle bus with about 1 1/2 hour tour of the city--excellent way to get your bearings. After that I walked across the street from the visitor center to this house. The docent was well versed in it's history, no flash pictures were allowed. The grounds are well maintained and there...

Waiting for the tour was the best part. The garden club does a marvelous job of keeping up the backyard garden. The tour itself was bland and boring, much of the house was closed off and our tour guide spent more time talking to a little girl then actually showing off the house. I was in a larger group and...

We visited the Charleston Museum and received a discounted ticket to visit the house. The staircase is beautiful The tour guide was pretty monotone. I would have enjoyed a little bit more liveliness from her.

So much history is this building. The story about how there was a gas station and a dry cleaner on the property for a while and how they were able to get the property back and preserve it is wonderful. The history is amazing.
