Beautiful house and immaculately groomed grounds. Our tour made the house come alive throughout it's history. Saw other residences and none came close to the quality of the restoration/preservation of this one.

Perfect for history lovers. I liked the guided tour with the headphones. I could move at my own pace and liked the quiet private feel

Hats off to Charleston Historical Society for their great app that cookbooks you through the mansion for a self guided tour. Content was interesting and well narrated with lots of opportunities to access extra details on certain subjects.
