Mary Baker Middleton's Timeline

Middleton Place Plantation, Charleston, S.C.

This place is beautiful I remember touring it with my late husband and his Aunt and Uncle when they came to visit us while we were stationed and the Navy base back in the 1970's. The pictures really don't tell how beautiful it really is. You miss the smells of flowers. They also are not showing the whole story either of like the slave quarters. It is my understanding that the plantation was used to film Gone with the Wind. (At least that is what our guide told us.) I see the tree is still there that my late husband climbed in order to get pictures of him sitting in the tree.
