  • The house is restored, with a visitor center, a grounds with walking paths, near Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumpter. I had to drive thru city streets to get there. Need more time than 30 minutes.  more »

  • More of an outdoors experience. Going to check out the house really isn't worth it. Small selection of things displayed, and a bit disinteresting. The surrounding grounds are beautiful though.
  • I didn’t go inside the house - too hot and stuff today but the grounds are beautiful! Lots of trails out in the open and through the woods through small tree tunnels. There are signs with history bites all over the property. Bathrooms are clean and there is a filtered water refill station. It is a coveted station and there are quite a few picnic tables and trash receptacles. Parking lot is a decent size (maybe 15 spots). Gravel. Leashed pet dogs are welcome everywhere except inside the house.
  • Enjoy a plantation home of one of our founding fathers. Great place to talk a walk and just enjoy the scenery.
  • Nice way to spend some low key time in the Charleston SC area. Enjoyed the visit and the gardens. Best of all- it's a national park service site. Feel free to make a donation since there's no charge for admission.
  • Very small and quaint with not much to see, but it does give a good insight into some US history. Worth the hour stop.
