We paid a visit to this property on our Charleston getaway, and were pretty impressed by the house as well as its furnishings. While not everything inside is original to the property, most of the pieces are true to its period. And, before you leave, don’t forget to check out the gardens, laundry and kitchen at the back of the house. The only downside to our tour was the young lady guide who needs to brush up the history of the property. If she was a bit informative and knowledgeable of the house, I’d give this one a 5-star rating.

"Charleston's Revolutionary War House….Features the only 1740s kitchen building open to the public in Charleston as well as formal gardens featuring plants commonly used in the South Carolina Lowcountry in the late 18th century." (excerpted from the Charleston Museum website). George Washington stayed in this home of Patriot artillery officer and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Heyward, Jr., in 1791. Gives fascinating insight into the very early days in Charleston.
