Holiday Decorations at the Joseph Manigault House 2011
Each year, the Garden Club of Charleston uses the Joseph Manigault House as a backdrop for their creative arrangements, using only live plant materials that would have been available in the Lowcountry during the
first quarter of the 19th century. This year’s theme is “Charleston’s Antebellum Charms”.
In the Museum’s Armory, see excellent examples of historic weaponry, dating from 1750 to the twentieth century, with uses that ranged from military to more personal applications such as hunting and dueling.
In the Lowcountry History Hall, see materials relating to the Native Americans who first inhabited the Lowcountry and the African American and European settlers who transformed the region into an agricultural empire.
In the Natural History gallery you will see an extraordinary array of birds, reptiles and mammals that have called the South Carolina Lowcountry home since prehistory, including contributions from noted naturalists.
