A Grand History

Since it opened in the mid-19th century, The Mills House Hotel - named for and built by local grain merchant Otis Mills - has seen a myriad of significant historical events. The hotel miraculously survived the city’s destruction during the Civil War. Additionally, President Theodore Roosevelt stayed here in 1902 during a visit to Charleston. Although it was demolished and replicated in 1968, key elements from the original building - including the ironwork and cornices - were preserved, and remain a part of the hotel’s architecture to this very day.
