Learning From The Past To Build A Better World

Through historic preservation, research, interpretation, academic programming and community outreach, Middleton Place uses its essential American stories to teach an appreciation for and an understanding of history.

All programming aligns with the South Carolina Department of Education Standards, and the Public Programming team is happy to customize the experience to meet the needs and curriculum of your class, youth group or university cohort.

With access to Middleton Place’s 65 acres of landscaped gardens, House Museum, Eliza’s House, and working stableyards, groups can explore an array of themes – from the American Revolution, slavery in the U.S. and the Civil War, to plantation life, botany, rice culture, animal husbandry and agriculture.
