Joseph Manigault House
360 Meeting St.
843.722.2996

Architect Gabriel Manigault designed this Adam-style house for his brother and construction of the three-story brick townhouse was complete in 1803. Gabriel also designed Charleston's City Hall and the South Carolina Society Hall. Joseph and Gabriel Manigault were descendents of French Huguenots who had sought refuge in America. Joseph Manigault came from a rice-planting family, owned several plantations, and slave quarters still stand on the property. He also sat in the state legislature and was a trustee of the College of Charleston. The primary attribute of this house is the curving central staircase which has been featured on America's Castles. Furnishings throughout the house are of American, English, and French periods.
