Some of the things we'll see in Historic Charleston

The Confederate submersible H. L. Hunley has the distinction of being the first submarine to sink an enemy warship in wartime. Although the boat and its crew were lost as a result of this endeavor, the success of their mission proved that this new style of naval warfare would be an inevitable course of future development. Powered by a hand crank operated by a crew of eight, the submarine silently approached USS Housatonic on 17 February 1864. H. L. Hunley rammed Housatonic below the water line, detonating a torpedo, tearing a hole in the Union ship’s hull sending her to the bottom. Hunley was not seen again for over a century. Author Clive Cussler, fellow Pierce-Arrow enthusiast and PAS member, was instrumental in the search and recovery of this historic vessel.
Charleston's Huguenot House ~ A striking spiral staircase accents the impressive central hall, and many of the rooms are restored to their original color schemes. All feature historic pieces from the Museum's collections including a selection of American, English and French furniture dating to the early 19th century. Outside, a classical Gate Temple overlooks a period garden. Descending from French Huguenots who fled religious persecution in Europe in the late 1600s, the Manigaults prospered as rice planters and merchants during the 18th century and became one of South Carolina’s leading families. Joseph Manigault inherited several rice plantations from his grandfather in 1788, and also married well.
Charleston's Revolutionary War House ~ Built in 1772, this Georgian-style double house was the town home of Thomas Heyward, Jr., one of four South Carolina signers of the Declaration of Independence. A patriot leader and artillery officer with the South Carolina militia during the American Revolution, Heyward was captured when the British took Charleston in 1780. In 1791, President George Washington stayed here during his week-long Charleston stay. You will see a superb collection of historic Charleston-made furniture and the property also features a 1740s kitchen building as well as formal gardens featuring plants commonly used in the South Carolina Lowcountry in the late 18th century.
The Bigelow family, William Barclay Hall and the staff of the garden stand ready to bring you the tea experience of your life. Located on picturesque Wadmalaw Island in the heart of the lowcountry, the Charleston Tea Plantation offers much to see. From acres of tea plants, to a very educational tour of the tea factory - you’ll see all the equipment and process it takes to make tea! Wadmalaw Island provides the perfect environment for propagating tea. With its sandy soils, sub-tropical climate and average rainfall of 52 inches per year, it possesses idyllic conditions for the Camellia Sinensis tea plant.
The Angel Oak Tree is thought to be one of the oldest living things in the country. The tree is 65 feet high with a circumference of 25.5 feet, shading an area of 17,000 square feet. "Quercus virginiana", also known as the Southern Live Oak, is an evergreen oak tree endemic to the Southeastern United States. Though many other species are loosely called live oak, the southern live oak is particularly iconic of the Old South. Angel Oak Park is located on Johns Island on land that was part of Abraham Waight’s 1717 land grant. This "Lowcountry Treasure” receives approximately 400,000 visitors each year. It is considered to be the largest Southern Live Oak Tree east of the Mississippi estimated to be 300 to 400 years old.
World War II’s famous “Fighting Lady” would participate significantly in the Pacific offensive until the defeat of Japan in 1945. The Yorktown received the Presidential Unit Citation and earned 11 battle stars in World War II. In the 1950s, the Yorktown was modernized to operate jet aircraft as an attack carrier. In 1957, she was re-designated an anti-submarine aircraft carrier, and would later earn 5 battle stars for service off Vietnam. The ship also recovered the Apollo 8 astronauts and capsule. Decommissioned in 1970, today she is a floating military museum located at Patriot's Point adjacent to our hotel. Visit on your own during your stay!
