An 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprised of 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards, Middleton Place is a sterling example of the plantation era. The gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Rice Mill Pond in the spring.
