Joseph Manigault House Tours

This historic Charleston home, now part of the Charleston Museum, is a well-preserved example of Federal architecture of great historical and cultural significance to the city. It was built in 1803 by architect Gabriel Manigault for his brother Joseph, a rice baron and a figurehead of Charleston society at that time. The three-story townhouse is now a National Historic Landmark, showcasing the wealthy family’s 19th century urban lifestyle.

Walking into the home’s central hall, the towering spiral staircase and crystal chandelier make an immediate impression. The rooms maintain their period style and elegance, decorated in a combination of English, French and American styles with brightly colored walls and antique furnishings throughout. From the outside, one can admire the home’s brick facade and Gate Temple, with a well-tended period garden. Beside the house, the historical foundations of the estate’s former kitchen, slave quarters and privy are waiting to be explored.
