Edmondston-Alston House, Charleston
This house museum is one of Charleston's most splendid dwellings. It was built in 1825 on Charleston's High Battery. The house has remained in the Alston family since 1838. Alston family furniture, silver, books and paintings remain in the high-ceilinged rooms much as they have been for over a century and a half.
Built in 1828, this house has been owned by the same family (Alston) since 1838. A family member still lives on the third floor, so the 30 minute tour is only of the lower two floors.
