Overview
More
Middleton Place is an 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprising 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped Gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards. The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring.

Great feel for plantation life -- but surprised to find out that the original house was gone - -but a wonderful collection of the family's heirlooms and use of one of the wing houses to show the lifestyle.

We visited Middleton Place to experience a southern plantation and found it informative and beautiful, even if few flowers were blooming. The house tour, especially, was educational with an experienced guide who could answer many questions. The grounds are beautiful and are enhanced by the...More

This was a very nice plantation to visit. I went with a girl friend and we stayed over 2 hours. The grounds are spectacular! The fountains and statues were really beautiful, I would visit again.

Beautiful gardens, a working stable with horses, goats, sheep. You will not regret a visit to this lovely plantation. The Spanish moss hanging from trees, dipping down into ponds and lakes is amazing. You must visit the restaurant, best Fried Chicken I have ever had!

Middleton Place is beautiful. We happened to visit when they had craftspeople demonstrating how things were done in plantation days...everything from pottery to pulling cotton on a spinning wheel. Getting to see various animals was really neat for my kids and the gardens were more...More
