Charleston Insider's Guide > Attractions & Tours > Charleston, SC Houses and Plantations

Charleston has a complete history of recognized people and infamous events. Many of the city's dwellings that housed prominent figures from America's past still stand throughout Charleston's historic districts. Some have been damaged by war and weather; some have remained unscathed for centuries. Having played a role in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, Charleston has accommodated countless generals, soldiers, and politicians including George Washington. Plantations around the city have been home to countless wealthy southern families and their servants. Slave quarters and outbuildings can be seen, still intact a hundred years after being occupied. Many of the homes have been purchased by historical societies and are open to the public for tours. Historic homes can be found all over the greater Charleston area, it is up to the visitor to determine which are worth exploring.
