Take a trip back in time to Middleton Place, a Civil War era plantation on the Ashley River. Middleton Place is now a National Historic Landmark consisting of 110 vibrant acres including 65 acres of America’s oldest landscaped gardens – floral allées, terraced lawns, a pair of ornamental lakes shaped like butterfly wings – as well as a House Museum, working Stableyards with artisans and heritage breed animals, a Restaurant, Inn, and Organic Farm – all waiting to be explored.
The CDG event includes a private guided tour of the House Museum to introduce you to the men, women and children who made Middleton Place their home for over three centuries, including not only the Middleton family, but also the enslaved people and freedmen who served them. The story is interpreted through an extraordinary collection of original portraits, furniture, silver, china, documents and other objects that belonged to and were used by family members.
Between tours, enjoy a traditional Low Country buffet lunch complete with gumbo, fried chicken, and pecan pie This activity includes admission, transportation, "behind the ropes" house tour, and lunch. Space is limited, this activity will be closed when full.
