Heyward-Washington House 


Heyward-Washington House


The Heyward-Washington House was built in 1772 by Thomas Heyward Jr., one of the signers of the declaration of Independence. 

The city rented the house from Heyward for President George Washington’s week long stay in Charleston in May 1791. The home is furnished with period pieces and the original kitchen is still present and open to the public. Visitors can also tour the formal gardens featuring plants commonly used in the South Carolina lowcountry in the 18th century. Combo tickets are available for the Charleston Museum, the Joseph Manigault House and the Heyward-Washington House. A combo ticket for 2 sites will be a savings of $6 and a combo ticket for 3 sites will be a savings of $11. Allow about an hour to tour the house and gardens.
