September is Membership Month

Category: Foundation

To thank local residents for supporting organizations through memberships, for entire the month of September, visitors can show their valid membership card to any historic or cultural site, museum, or performance venue located in Berkeley, Charleston, or Dorchester County and receive 50% off adult general admission to Middleton Place. General admission for children and students age 6-18 is only $5, and children 5 and under are free.

Families can spend a few hours or an entire day exploring the 110 acres of Middleton Place National Historic Landmark, including Americas Oldest Landscaped Gardens and the working Stableyards with artisans and heritage-breed animals. The following daily guided tours are included in General Admission:

Guided Garden Tours.   Daily 10:00-3:00 pm Each Tour limited to 10 people (duration: 30 minutes). Discover more about the contributions of Europeans and enslaved Africans and African Americans to Middleton Place on a guided garden walk of American Oldest Landscape Gardens. Learn about the land, the flora, and stories of the people who designed, created, and maintained them.
