Charleston, South, Carolina, United States
There is no place like Mulberry. The historic plantation is wonderfully preserved and stunningly beautiful. The main house was built by Thomas Broughton who became the royal governor of South Carolina in 1735. The house was old by the time of The America Revolution. Constructed in 1714 on the highest point in the area the house is the third oldest in South Carolina. It is on the National Register and is a National Historic Landmark. The house was recently celebrated for its three hundred year anniversary. The present owners purchased Mulberry in 1988 and added the portion known as South Mulberry shortly afterwards. They put together a fabulous team. The buildings and grounds were extensively restored in every detail. There are gardens, foot paths, winding trails, game plots, dove fields, lakes and ponds offering spectacular views. The drive to the main house is two miles long and passes through rich hunting lands and giant live oaks. Mulberry’s excellent staff manages the plantation for hunting, fishing, relaxing and entertaining. There is plenty to see and do on seventeen hundred acres with over two miles of waterfront located forty-five minutes from downtown Charleston, the most popular tourist destination in the country.
