Fodor's Review

An extraordinary example of Federal architecture, this 1803 residence was designed by Gabriel Manigault for his brother, Joseph. The National Historic Landmark reflects the urban lifestyle of a well-to-do rice-planting family and the African Americans they enslaved. Engaging guided tours reveal a stunning spiral staircase; rooms that have been preserved in period style; and American, English, and French furniture from the early 19th century. Outside, stroll through the artfully maintained period garden with a classical Gate Temple and interpretive signs that note where historical buildings once stood.
