This was a nice place to visit and had some interesting points, but after seeing other historic homes, this was my least favorite. It had some good architecture and history, but nothing I would want to see again.

The most amazing part of the tour is understanding the amazing job that women did to preserve this wonderful house. It is a brief tour but a wonderful place.

It is hard for me to say which historic home is my favorite as there are more I did not visit. This house has a fascinating history having almost been lost to the whims of modern times. Fortunately, the home was rescued and we can all walk through the portals of time. Well worth a visit.

This grand old house has stood the test of time. The tour guide was very good about guiding us through the local history and how it pertained tot he house yet also made the architecture and different styles of furnishings stand out. Very good tour and a must see!

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
