This 18th-century plantation is listed as a National Historic Landmark and boasts one of the country's oldest formal gardens. Most of the original structures were burned during Sherman's raid, but the 1755 red-brick guest wing still remains, as does a sugarcane mill and working stable. Gift shop and restaurant on-site.
Middleton Place Plantation is not only a National Historic Landmark, but also America's oldest landscaped gardens, and a great place to spend a day with the family outside the city. Enjoy Middleton Place's Camellias in winter, vibrant Azaleas in spring, and Magnolias, Crepe Myrtles and roses in summer, as the garden is blooming year-round. Visitors to Middleton Place may tour the gardens, the South Flanker House Museum, built in 1755 as the gentleman's guest quarters, as well as the surrounding landscaped property and ruins from buildings burned in the Civil War. Middleton Place is the birthplace of Arthur Middleton, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and has housed four generations of the Middleton family.
