Charleston Sights

Edmondston-Alston House

Updated 09/24/2012

Fodor's Review

In 1825, Charles Edmondston built this house in the Federal style, with Charles Alston transforming it into the imposing Greek Revival structure you see today beginning in 1838. Tours of the home—furnished with antiques, portraits, silver, and fine china—are informative.

Big historic house in a lovely area

Right in the Battery area amid several similar gems, this is a huge plantation style historic house, lovely inside and out with plenty of personal effects. Tour is helpful and informative, price on the high side. Has a nice view of the harbor and Ft. Sumter. Well worth the visit.
