Had practically a personal tour as only one other person showed up for 10:30 tour. You do have to wait outside as the door is locked in between tours. Tip - if only have a few days or weekend, purchase the 2-day plantation, museum and houses combination ticket at the Visitors Center, Meeting Street, for best deal.

This home gives you a history from colonial times thru the Great depression. Saved from demolition by two ladies who wanted to save it, it was rented out room by room to whole families before being taken over by the historical society. Great examples of architectureal styles both inside and out. There was even a gas station on the grounds... More

Owned by the Charleston Museum across the street, which is good to go to also, this house epitomized the wide central halls and spacious rooms of a classic Southern mansion. It garden is lovely and is maintained by the Garden Club of Charleston. At Christmas, they provide spectacular decorations for the house.

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.
