About Middleton Place Foundation
Located in Charleston, SC, Middleton Place Foundation, a public, non-profit educational trust, is responsible for effectively operating and preserving Middleton Place National Historic Landmark and the Edmondston-Alston House. Middleton Place Foundation’s mission is to connect people with the past, inspiring a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other through understanding American history. The Foundation upholds the highest levels of historic preservation, research, education, and inclusive interpretation by sharing the stories of the Africans, African Americans, and Europeans who lived and worked on these historic properties.
For decades, Middleton Place Foundation has provided educational programs to the public. Based on ongoing historical research, Middleton Place historians, interpretive guides, artisan craftspeople, and educators offer authentic experiences that inspire people to deepen and broaden their perspectives of our nation’s shared history and ourselves. The history at Middleton Place spans three centuries of one family, including a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the essential stories and contributions of over 3,200 enslaved people who lived and labored here.
Located along the historic Ashley River, Middleton Place encompasses 110 acres of America’s Oldest Landscaped Gardens, House Museum, Stableyards, and Eliza’s House. Guests can enjoy the restaurant, retail shops, and award-winning 55-room Inn at Middleton Place. The Foundation also operates the Edmondston-Alston House, a House Museum in downtown Charleston. Each year, over 100,000 visitors and over 6,000 students and teachers come to explore our shared American history.
