The Charleston Museum’s Joseph Manigault House

The National Historic Landmark Joseph Manigault House was built in 1803 and is one of two National Historic Landmark Homes operated by the Charleston Museum.  The other one is The Heyward – Washington House built in 1772. 

The Joseph Manigault House is located at 350 Meeting Street in historic downtown Charleston.  The Heyward – Washington House is located at 87 Church Street in historic downtown Charleston.

The Joseph Manigault House, also know as “Charleston’s Huguenot House”, was designed by Gabriel Manigault for his brother Joseph.  This three story suburban villa is a premier example of Federal, or Adam Style, architecture.  The house reveals the lifestyle of a wealthy, rice planting family of French – Huguenot descent and the African American slaves who lived there.  The interior boasts of American, English, and French furnishings, while a charming Gate Temple is the focus of a period garden.
