A college student (I think) was our tour guide. He talked so fast it was impossible to understand 75% of what he was saying. We managed to piece together the story of the house but his presentation colored the entire tour. While he was knowledgeable, spewing dates, it felt rote. This house is a landmark of a time gone by.... More

We had to wait outside in the heat for our tour, which gave us time to look around the grounds, which was fairly interesting, but beastly hot. The home was interesting, but not outstanding. I would recommend this, but there may be better homes to visit. We did this as an add-on to our city tour with Grayline bus tours.

This historic house is situated next to the Charleston Museum with convenient parking at the large parking lot near the Visitor's Center. It may not be as elaborately furnished as some of the other Charleston houses located further down on Meeting or Bay Streets but it is historically just as interesting especially as it came very close to being demolished...

I saw another reviewer stated this was his last house to visit and his least favorite, for us it was the first house we visited and we really liked it. This house had style that the others didn't. It has the subtle beauty, not lavish and loud like the Calhoun, not utilitarian like the Hawthorne Washington but a subtle beauty... More

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
