Heyward Washington House


George Washington did indeed sleep here in Charleston, in 1791 when he stayed in the Heyward Washington House. This handsome brick building, dating from 1772, is now a historic house museum and National Historic Landmark. Tours reveal a magnificent collection of Charleston-made furniture and a formal garden with plants familiar to Charlestonians in the late 18th century.
