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?

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 was a very well restored local house that had a varied history. The docent who gave the tour was delightful and charming. I would recommend this tour!
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.

She had searched the family diaries to get interesting details... 更多
This home was designed by the owner's brother who was a "gentleman" architect of the period. Home is furnished in the period it was built. During December each year it is decorated by the Gdn Club of Charleston and is a great time to revisit.
Beautifully restored house that gives you an impression of antebellum life in Charleston. Too bad the docents couldn't project any interest at all. Fortunately, the house speaks for itself.
