This is a fascinating home. The tour was wonderfully informative not only about the Manigault family, but the furnishings were very nice. We learned so much about life in the early 1800's. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

I toured the Manigault House this past week on my visit to Charleston. It was an easy walk from the Hampton Inn where i was staying and also the Charleston Museum and the Charleston Visitors Center. All of the these sites are within the same city blocks so you can visit all withing one morning or one afternoon. The garden... More

We really would have liked to spend time absorbing the ambience of this lovely and historic Adams-style house north of city center. Too bad our guide talked in and on and on without ever getting into the house itself. But they were very nice folks and the place is definitely worth the aggravation.

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.
