Joseph Manigault House

350 Meeting Street, Charleston, South Carolina

The Basics

An impressive central hall, with its spiral staircase leading to the upper floors, greets visitors entering the Joseph Manigault House. Many of the rooms have been restored to what they might have looked like in the 19th century, complete with original color schemes and a collection of French, American, and English period furniture. Entrance to the house also includes access to a period garden and several historical outbuildings, such as stables, kitchen, and former slave quarters.

Choose between a single admission to the Joseph Manigault House or a combination ticket that includes the Heyward-Washington House or the Charleston Museum as well. Some bus tours also include an optional upgrade that includes a visit to the house.
