Known as a National Historic Landmark and recognized as home to "America's Oldest Landscaped Gardens," Middleton Place captivates its visitors with a beauty and elegance that can be viewed year-round. Middleton's 65 acres house endless gardens, the House Museum which was once home to many generations of the Middleton Family, and the Plantation Stableyards. The gardens themselves are a "superb exercise in logic and geometry," mimicking the style of 17th century European design and have been open to the public since 1952. What truly makes Middleton Place one of a kind are the animals who roam freely about the property and the historical reenactments of life in the 1700 and 1800s. The beauty encompassed here is something that shouldn't be missed.
