Access To Middleton Place
Guests of the Inn at Middleton Place enjoy complimentary access to Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark comprised of America's Oldest Landscaped Gardens, House Museum, and Stableyards.
While a guest of the Inn at Middleton Place, one may visit Middleton Place for a look at 18th and 19th century working plantation life. In the Plantation Stableyards, African-American slaves cared for the animals and performed agriculture-related chores. The skilled slaves were also responsible for making tools, pottery, clothing, and other products to support a fully functioning plantation.
The same breeds of water buffalo, sheep, goats, Guinea hogs and poultry, documented to have been at Middleton Place over the past two centuries, can still be seen here today. A weaver, cooper, carpenter, potter and blacksmith are at work demonstrating the skills practiced by artisan slaves. Craft demonstrators and interpretive guides discuss slavery and plantation life from the earliest periods through Emancipation, Reconstruction and the first half of the 20th century.
