A "flanker" building. The main residence was in the middle, with two flankers on either side. This flanker is all that remains.
Historic Middleton Place, in South Carolina, is home to the ghosts of the enslaved, who toiled harvesting rice, building a plantation, digging sprawling gardens, and working a farm that was the livelihood for a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Middleton is home to the oldest landscaped gardens in America. Now, it is a peaceful haven for animals and birds, humans and humid breezes. But the past is brutal.
Prepare to spend the day, strolling the lush gardens that grow under ethereal strands of moss, touring the remaining residence, and investigating the working farm. Plus, there is a Southern buffet with fried chicken and pecan pie. Need I say more?
Follow our feet...
Ruins and such.
Broken odds and ends.
A working forge.
