An amazing house filled with treasures from the past
This was the last home we toured and it blew us away!! The home has an incredible history of rags and riches and the amount of original lighting and wood work preserved in incredible. The “bones” of the home are beautiful to see, but the the true grandeur is in the current owners furniture and art collection. Over the top amazing!! from Trip Advisor
Be warned – this is not your average plantation house tour. The Calhoun Mansion is a wonderful old home that is filled from top to bottom and all nooks and crannies of some of the most wonderful antiques and interesting old stuff you can imagine. Yes, some of it is original to the beautiful home, but some is just a collector’s paradise. The owner…
Mansion of History and Antiques
I have been on a lot of the other tours of homes in the historic district. Would never have guessed the contents of the house based on view from curbside. The collection inside is amazing! Word of warning for those with OCD! from Trip Advisor
Not your typical old historic mansion tour but rather a glimpse into the lives of people who originally built and lived there as well as the current owner who lives there.

Having been to several cities with properties that boast similar architecture and charm, we wanted to experience something out-of-the-ordinary in Charleston. And believe me, we found it at Calhoun…

It is $16 pp to see it. Our tour though was wonderful. The 1st room you will see is called the OMG room b/c that’s what…
