Hayward Washington House in historic Charleston is the city’s first housing museum. This Georgian house was built by rice farmer Daniel Hayward for his son Thomas Hayward from 1770 to 1772. Thomas Hayward was an artillery officer in the American Revolutionary War, notably a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Here you can find a wonderful collection of historic Charleston furniture, including the precious Holmes Bookcase, one of the masterpieces of American colonial furniture. Charleston was also the only building with an open kitchen in the 1740s, as well as a formal garden filled with plants commonly used in the lower parts of South Carolina in the late 18th century.
