Owner description: The Foundation welcomes visitors to explore daily life in one of Charleston's most exquisite dwellings. Located in Downtown Charleston near High Battery, the Nathaniel Russell House Museum, 51 Meeting Street, is widely recognized as one of America's most important neoclassical dwellings. Historic Charleston Foundation purchased the National Historic Landmark in 1955, and the house served as the Foundation's headquarters for 37 years. Today, the interiors are restored to their original 1808 grandeur and surrounded by formal gardens.

As a relatively new resident of Charleston, and a friend of the Nathaniel Russell House, I bring all of my houseguests to tour this historic and lovely home. In the last two years, I have toured about a dozen times.

With my most recent houseguest, I was fortunate to have Martine Dulles as my guide. Martine conducted the most enthusiastic tour I have yet experienced, and my guest was enchanted. Bravo!

We had been looking forwards to the visit as it showed 3stars in USA Michelin guide. We looked forwards to seeing the great staircase, but only a view from the lower hall so not impressive . The house is large and only two floors highlighted so none of the slaving heritage , or working procedures were shown. Much restoration of curtains and carpets yet to be fulfilled

The most fabulous feature of this home was the floating spiral staircase and the curved rooms on the side of the house with balconies. Even if you don't take the tour stop in and walk through the gardens - beautiful. Amazing history to the house and so glad we are able to tour it today!

This mansion has been restored to original condition. It is an amazing example of the excess of the wealthy Charleston merchant class before the Civil War. Imported hand-painted wallpaper, gold leaf decoration, formal furnishings. A good tour to pair with the Aiken-Rhett house which has not been restored. Buy a combination ticket at either property for a discount on both tours.
