We discovered this house on our walk from our hotel to and from downtown. It was a nice house that you could walk around by yourself, We didn't do a tour, we just walked around the gardens and read the plaques that are stationed around...More

This was the most interesting house, as far as architecture, that I saw while in Charleston. It’s unique design has doors that lead to nowhere, just for symmetry, and other quirky features that I enjoyed seeing. The tour was informative, and the grounds are beautiful...More

Lots to see here in the house designed by Joseph's brother, Gabriel - a self-taught architect! Also fun to learn that the Manigaults are still around (as opposed to most historic houses whose families have died out or left the area); they now own the...More

Had a wonderful docent take us through the house. Very knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. It was our first time touring an historic house in Charleston. A worthwhile experience.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant, however, we could only visit part of the house as some was deemed unsafe and the kitchen and worker's quarters had burned down.

Yes, you can buy a ticket for admission to just this house, at the visitor center on meeting street across the street or at the entrance door to the house. I believe you can save a little by purchasing from the visitor... More
