“We are confident that the robust protocols that we have put in place will insure that both staff and visitors to this extraordinary landscape will, with social distancing and common-sense actions, be a safe respite from the isolation so many people are now experiencing.," Tracey Todd, President and CEO of the Middleton Place Foundation, said.
The 110-acres of gardens and the stableyards, with their heritage-breed animals and artisans performing tasks required to maintain a 18th and 19th-century rice plantation, are open to all visitors. The Middleton Place Restaurant is offering visitors outdoor seating, take-out service for lunch and picnic tables are also available.
Ticket pricing has been revised, as well. Lowcountry Tri-County residents pay $26 while non-locals pay $29 per adult. However, if you purchase online, tickets are $20, a 30% discount that also allows for nearly contactless admission.
Also open is the Garden Market and Nursery. Shopping there does not require general admission.
For additional information, visit https://www.middletonplace.org and note that the House Museum is closed until further notice. Ticketing on-site ends at 3:30 pm with all visitors required to leave the property by 5 pm.
The Middleton Place Foundation will continue to offer “Plugged In To History,” a digital content portal, which can be accessed here.
