  • This place was awesome. If you want some history, you need to visit. To actually stand in the same room the George Washington stayed in is remarkable. The house is in wonderful shape, the museum has done a great job to restore a piece of history.
  • One of the most historic homes in Charleston. Was rented by George Washington for 8 days after the revolutionary war. Very much worth seeing for how life was lived at the time.
  • Cool Georgian home in a beautiful city. A must see gorgeous architecture and design enthusiasts. Give yourself a full day at least to tour the city.
  • Such a great way to learn about Charleston architecture, early days of the Revolutionary War, and the life of slaves in Charleston in the time period.
  • Loved the history of this beautiful home. Definitely get the group tickets at the museum for the museum and the two historical homes.
