No longer an actual attraction. This is the personal home of someone and can only be viewed from the outside. It's still cool to swing by and see, though I wouldn't make a trip just to see it.

If you are walking through Charleston, it's easy to stop by this attraction. All you can do is peer through the windows, but knowing it's the oldest home is pretty neat! Cobblestone streets only blocks from a historic graveyard and market street.

It's worth a stop to photograph and walk the cobblestone streets. Can't go inside it, but you can check it off the list of things to see in Charleston.

I liked what was displayed there and the house itself is really cute and has its own story to tell. The lady who runs the place told me, she had to close down after 20 years since the house was sold to a private investor....More
