The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th Century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres and reflecting pools full of swans are highlights of their intricate design.

Fort Sumter National Monument

Seated on a 200-acre (81-hectare) island at the entrance to Charleston Harbor, this former coastal fortification is augmented by the clear waters of the deep blue sea. The site of two prominent battles of the American Civil War, this seaside fort commands much historical significance. Fort Sumter had been under construction for more than 30 years in the December of 1860 when Major Robert Anderson relocated his troops there in the middle of the night from Fort Moultrie. On April 12, 1861, the first shot of the Civil War was fired on the Fort by Confederate troops. Following 34 hours of fighting, Major Anderson surrendered to the attacking troops. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the fort complex now includes the site of Fort Moultrie, a visitor center and the fort itself. Contrasted by rolling green fields below, the visitor center is complete with military remnants and exhibits chronicling the activities of the fort during its heyday, and the indelible role it played during the course of the battle.
