Fodor's Expert Review Joseph Manigault House

North of Broad House/Mansion/Villa

An extraordinary example of Federal architecture, this 1803 residence and National Historic Landmark reflects the urban lifestyle of a well-to-do rice-planting family and the Africans 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 historic buildings once stood.
