While the prior houses have been destroyed, the current house was built in the 1930s. The steps are to the sides of the portico. Interestingly, while it looks like steps are missing at the front of the portico, that’s actually where the carriages would drop the ladies off at when they came to visit the home.
If the house looks familiar, it’s because the exterior was used as Allie’s parents’ summer house in The Notebook. It also appeared in North and South and Alex Haley’s Queen.
Upon leaving the plantation, we headed to downtown Charleston for a night out. We explored some while waiting on our table at Poogan’s Porch. Not only was Poogan’s yummy, but we were able to experience sitting on the second-story porch–perfect night with great friends!
