Joseph Manigault House 


Joseph Manigault House

The Joseph Manigault house was built in 1803 and was designed by Joseph Manigault's brother Gabriel who also designed Charleston’s current City Hall. Joseph was a wealthy rice planter who inherited several rice plantations and over two hundred slaves from his grandfather in addition to marrying into a family with lots of money. His wife's father, Arthur Middleton, was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The centerpiece of the house is a “flying” staircase in the hall and as you travel throughout the house you will notice that many of the rooms are restored to their original color schemes and decorated with an exceptional collection of American, English and French period furnishings. If you plan on visiting the Charleston Museum or the Heyward-Washington House, you can buy combo tickets and save money. Allow about 30 minutes to tour the house.
