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.

The first place we make sure all our out-of-town guests get to see. Stunning gardens (at their best during spring azalea season) and fascinating house museum, with lots of lovely old furniture, pictures, and other old family heirlooms of one of the most prominent families...More
