MIDDLETON PLACE is a National Historic Landmark and a carefully preserved 18th-century plantation that has survived revolution, Civil War, and earthquake. It was the home of four important generations of Middletons, beginning with Henry Middleton, President of the First Continental Congress; Arthur, a signer of the Declaration of Independence; Henry, Governor of South Carolina and an American Minister to Russia; and Williams, a signer of the Ordinance of Secession. Middleton Place, America's oldest landscaped gardens, invites visitors to walk the same footpaths and enjoy the same vistas that from 1741 - 1865 inspired four important generations of the distinguished Middleton family.
