Step back in time and immerse yourself in history at Middleton Place Plantation. The National Historic Landmark preserves the stories of the Middleton family, the enslaved, and the freedmen. In the House Museum built in 1775, view original furniture, artifacts, documents, jewelry, and fine art. Then walk to the stable yards, blacksmith, textile and pottery shops where you can observe demonstrations of tasks pertaining to plantation life in the 18th-19th centuries by costumed crafts-people. Tour the slave quarters and freedman’s house to learn about the people and their legacy on the plantation. Wander through the oldest landscaped garden in the U.S. boasting 65-acres of meticulous formal gardens with majestic oak trees and fragrant magnolias. Look for alligators swimming or basking along the water’s edge. The working farm features heritage breeds such as cattle, cashmere goats, gulf coast sheep, Belgian horses, water buffalo and Guinea hogs. There is an entrance fee.
