Middleton Place Reopens Gardens & Stableyards

Middleton Place, the ancestral home of two Founding Fathers and site of America’s oldest landscaped gardens, has reopened to the public.

“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.
