Henry Middleton was a signer to the Declaration of Independence, and his plantation became one of many along the Ashley River near Charleston, SC. Near the end of the Civil War, Union soldiers burned all but one of the plantation houses, and Middleton House was no exception. Here the lagoon bursts with colors at Easter. Today Middleton Place is a hotel and conference center. Whenever I am in the neighborhood, I try to spend the night. The rooms are comfortable and they also have a great restaurant.
