Our visit was 11 August 2022. We had been on a Carriage ride early during the week and this house was brought to our attention. We took the tour of this house and it was very informative. The staff are very professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. The stairwell which it is known for was beautiful. The whole house is lovely and puts you into the mind set of that period. We enjoyed chatting with staff and learning some interesting information. I would bring friends & family to this location again.
The house tour was lovely, very informative historian that guided us in each room and shared stories and information of the homes history. was a cool experience to get to see the “inside” of a home in Charleston of what it would have looked like back in time. Would recommend if you want to do a house tour
