Beautiful house

The house and furnishings are beautiful. Period pieces, many original to the house. Overall a worthwhile tour. A warning, only one room has a/c.

This house is loaded with some very unique moldings and art work. Lots of history and good docents make this a must see for those who like the stories that go along with the building.

Great tour, great information and one of the oldest houses left in the city. Some of the original family's collection are on display, and the grounds are beautiful. The tour guide was great and it was not overpriced.

We arrived several minutes before the tour was supposed to start with the thinking that we needed to get tickets and be ready to go. We were told to continue waiting on the porch. The door opened again right on the dot. It took a few minutes to get tickets... maybe that was why the tour guide was in such... More

Fine piece of history that is still being restored as information comes available. Not everything is authentic to the house due to many owners over the years, however the staff is knowledgeable and can fill in gaps. It's not air conditioned, so in the summer months it can become almost unbearably hot to visit so just come prepared. Can be... More

Tour was interesting. Disappointed that most of the furnishings and brick-a-brack only period pieces, not how the home actually looked. Docent was wonderful and very knowledgeable about this house and the other city historical landmarks, as well.

The guided tour takes you through the entire house, except the top floor. Very informative and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about the architecture, the house, its inhabitants and the family. Great for history buffs and the entire family!

We arrived in time for the first tour of the day (10:00), as we read up that only one room of the house is air conditioned. The tour itself was informative and lasted just long enough. Enjoyed hearing about the transformation of the property as it changed owners over the years. Definitely worth it, particularly as part of a $25,... More

This house was included and was a stop of a tour of Charleston. I enjoyed learning about the history of this city. It was interesting to learn that no new construction is allowed in certain parts of the city and everything must be preserved.

Ante-bellum house, done in elegant style. Interesting docent-led tour told us the history of this lovely old home. Used by USO during WWII! The dining room set-up is especially nice.
