Planters commonly maintained homes in the city and on their plantations. Joseph Manigault - planter,buisnessman, slave-owner and legislator - built this elegant townhouse in 1803.
??At that time this neighborhood (Wraggborough) was concidered the "country," a suburb beyond the city limits of Charleston. Wealthy planters and merchants were attracted here by the large lots and cool breezes.
??By the mid-19th centry, the neighborhood featured both commercial and industrial enterprises, and residents included immigrants, slaves, and free African-Americans.
? ??Regarded as one of the finest examples of Federal style architecture in America, the Joseph Manigault House is a National Historic Landmark. It is wholly owned, restored, and maintained by The Charleston Museum, a nonprofit organization.
