Heyward-Washington House

We toured the Heyward-Washington House late afternoon, the second day of our trip to Charleston, SC. The house was interesting because of both its history and antique furniture. Originally owned by Thomas Heyward, Jr, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, the house is also famous for boarding George Washington for a week in 1791. Although the furniture in the house is not original to the house, the antiques include the Holmes Bookcase one of the best examples of American-made furniture.

Outside you can explore the period garden and outside kitchen at your own pace. While I would not recommend this tour for small children, my husband and I did enjoy it as adults.
