This was the home of the Middletons, one of the low country's wealthiest and most important families of the 18th and 19th centuries. You may take a guided tour of the house and gardens. The gardens, once the site of rice fields, are magnificent in the springtime. The terraces behind the house lead all the way down to the Ashley River. Scenes from the Mel Gibson movie The Patriot were filmed here.
