Middleton Oak Sketch
One of the earliest landscaped gardens in the American colonies was designed in 1740 at Middleton Place, a large plantation northwest of Charleston, South Carolina. The tree began growing on the Ashley River's banks centuries a year later when Henry Middleton — who would become president of the First Continental Congress — started a plantation there. The tree eventually became an iconic feature of the 60-acre landscaped garden that has no shortage of iconic views.
Legend has it that the Middleton Oak was originally an Indian “trail tree” tied to the ground as a sapling to mark favorite lands.
