Here is a wonderful example of Adams Style architecture. This fully furnished 1803 home was designed by the owner's brother, a self-taught architect. The Manigault family was another of Old Charleston's wealthy rice plantation holding families.

Wonderfully restored Adams-style architecture home! Our docent was very knowledgeable and loved this home and its history. She pointed out many details that we would have otherwise missed, including the rooms that were appointed just for the family and those for any guests. Well worth the price, especially if you get the Charleston Museum Mile ticket.

This is the kind of thing that historians and preservationists have been dealing with for decades. Build a shopping mall next to the First Manassas battlefield? Build a housing development on the slope of Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg? Demolish the Joseph Manigault House in Charleston, South Carolina, to make way for gas station? That's the dilemma that befell Charleston citizens... More

The guided tour of this magnificent home is well worth the time. One gets a good look at the simple architecture and furnishings of a grand house of its time.

This house is located across the street from the Charleston Museum. You can book the Museum and Joseph Manigault House tour together. Beautiful house and interesting history.

This home has been restored and was decorated in a nutcracker theme by the local garden club. It is a beautiful home and well worth seeing.

We visited the Joseph Manigault House in early December, and it had been decorated by the Garden Club of Charleston for the holidays. The guide was quick to point out that the holiday trimmings may have NOT been representative of holiday trimmings in the early 19th century. The home has been restored, and the out buildings (kitchen, laundry, stable) no... More

Go to the Charleston Museum first (already reviewed and part of a tour-combo) to get the best historical overview and to combine tickets for a better price. This house, to me, was the greatest example of how capitalism became consumerism. There is great beauty here but there is also the idea of outdoing one's neighbours, business partners, family, citizens, and... More

We combined the tour of the Joseph Manigault house with the museum across the street. Doing this gave us a break on the ticket prices. WE did the museum first, which really laid a good foundation for the house tour. Our tour guide was knowledgable and passionate about her subject. She had searched the family diaries to get interesting details... More
