Information from Middleton Place Website
MIDDLETON PLACE is a National Historic Landmark and a carefully preserved 18th-century plantation that has survived revolution, Civil War, and earthquake. It was the home of four important generations of Middletons, beginning with Henry Middleton, President of the First Continental Congress; Arthur, a signer of the Declaration of Independence; Henry, Governor of South Carolina and an American Minister to Russia; and Williams, a signer of the Ordinance of Secession.
Visitors are invited to tour the Gardens, the House Museum, and the Plantation Stableyards. Middleton Place, located on Ashley River Road (Highway 61), just 14 miles northwest of Charleston, South Carolina, is owned and operated by the Middleton Place Foundation, a non-profit 501(C)(3) educational trust.
