    Our visit was 11 August 2022. We had been on a Carriage ride early during the week and this house was brought to our attention. We took the tour of this house and it was very informative. The staff are very professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. The stairwell which it is known for was beautiful. The whole house is lovely and puts you into the mind set of that period. We enjoyed chatting with staff and learning some interesting information. I would bring friends & family to this location again.

    Our visit was 11 August 2022. We had been on a Carriage ride early during the week and this church was brought to our attention. We understand the history but we heard some famous celebrities had visited it and we were curious for many reasons. Also, we had toured one of the houses down the street. The church was unique to me as to how the pews were set up. I had not been to a church like this before. The church is stunning and the history of the church and representation were interesting. If ever in the area again, I would take friends & family down to visit it. It’s located in a nice, peaceful and safe area.

    This house is a National Historic Landmark because it's associated with two very important people, the son of the original builder, Thomas Heyward Jr., a signatory of the Declaration of Independence, and a prominent guest in 1791, President George Washington. Upstairs, in the Drawing Room, parties were held for President Washington, where he danced with numerous ladies of the Charleston aristocracy. When the party was over the men would repair to the Withdrawing Room where they would discuss business, politics, and the burning issues of the day. If you visit that room, you'll find a painting of a previous owner of the house by a young Samuel F B. Morse, the future inventor of the Morse Code. Also, the green bedroom contiguous to the Drawing Room is where Washington slept during his stay in Charleston.

    This mansion was once the home of John C Calhoun. The Williams Mansion is packed full of art and artifacts. It is worth your time if you are visiting or live in the area. The 30 minute tour cost $17 but you learn and see so much, worth it!

    Plus you are helping preserve history!

    Innkeepers/owners met us on arrival. Took us on a guided tour. They were very knowledgeable about Charleston's history and history of the Inn. 3 POTUS of the dined/stayed here. Such a charming place, we can't wait to visit again.

    We recently attended our first Chamber Music Charleston concert at this wonderful location, the first time that we had been there. The room in which the concert was performed was excellent with perfect acoustics for the piano, violin, and cello trio that performed. We are certainly looking forward to attending more concerts in this fabulous location on Meeting Street.
