Middleton Place


Middleton Place

Middleton Place is a 65 acre, 18th-century rice plantation. The plantation is the birthplace of Arthur Middleton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The plantation is now a National Historic Landmark and home to America’s oldest landscaped gardens. The Middleton Place House Museum was built in 1755 as the gentlemen’s guest quarters, and is the only structure still standing of the original three-building residential complex. The buildings were all burned by Union troops two months before the end of the Civil War. The building still present today was the least burned and restored to provide living quarters for the family. The house tour gives you insight into the Middleton family and the slaves that helped maintain the plantation. General admission gives access to the plantation stable yards and gardens, while the museum house tour is an additional fee. The plantation has an excellent restaurant and an Inn with 55 rooms on the property. Allow about two hours to tour the house and gardens.
