"A historical mansion with exclusive rooms for slaves"

Aiken-Rhett House is a unique historic mansion from the 1800s. The house was within the family for almost 142 years until it was sold to The Charleston Museum. This is a great place to see and explore for every history lover. The house is well preserved and highly recommended for a visit.
