In 1825, Charles Edmondston built this house in the Federal style on Charleston's High Battery. About 13 years later, second owner Charles Alston began transforming it into the Greek Revival structure seen today. Tours of the home—furnished with family antiques, portraits, silver, and fine china—are informative.

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.
