Located right in Old Town Charleston, the Heyward-Washington truly is a piece of history well worth seeing! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and the house and grounds are chock-full of historical artifacts.

Our tour guide gave us a lot of great information about this home and the people who lived here. I really liked learning the background on the furniture and China. The garden was so pretty, too.
