Middleton Plantation

My favorite flowers in South Carolina!

We loved the beautiful gardens at this plantation.

We were able to take a carriage ride through the plantation.

The horses were very gentle to touch.

The trees and gardens were lovely!

We even saw an alligator coming out of a pond!

I would have loved to have stayed longer here!

More lovely gardens!

This would be a great place for a picnic!

We took a tour of the plantation guest home that
wasn't destroyed during the end of the Civil War!

This is the largest oak tree on the plantation!

This is the only statue that wasn't destroyed after the Civil War!

We were surrounded by America's oldest landscaped gardens and really enjoyed seeing this beautiful National Historic Landmark. We took a tour at the Middleton Place House Museum and learned so much about the 18th and 19th century Middleton family and their important role in American history.
