Fodor's Review

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.
