Kevin, the most majestic peacock ever, poses in the stableyards atop the indigo vats. He looks as though he has just dipped his head into a full one!

One of our very own Pied Pipers of the Stableyard, Dave (and his friend!) has a very important message for this #GivingTuesday. Remember, you can still give this evening after close of business, or really anytime you like. There is a specific Stableyard support fund at the link in our profile - check out how you can support the animals at Middleton Place, a vital aspect of the experience provided by your favorite National Historic Landmark! . . . #givingtuesday #middletonplace #nationalhistoriclandmark #historic #plantation #stableyards #heritagebreeds #americanbelgians #americanbelgiandrafthorses #drafthorses #supportyourlandmark #loveyourlandmark #thankyou #thanksforyoursupport #keephistoryalive

When you give to support the mission of Middleton Place Foundation on Giving Tuesday or any day, you're supporting educational experiences for students nationwide. Kids who come here learn about many aspects of life on the plantation, including much of the work that was done here historically. Students learn about using natural resources like wax to make candles to light up the night. Thank you for supporting this important aspect of the Foundation's programming! Link to donate is in the profile. . . . . #middletonplace #nationalhistoriclandmark #historic #plantation #stableyards #enslavedhistory #worklife #education #edprograms #givingtuesday #thankyou #thanksforyoursupport #keephistoryalive #supportyourlandmark #loveyourlandmark #supportthekids

There are very few historic sites where you can follow the story of one family and the people who surrounded them for generations on one property. When you give to Middleton Place Foundation, you help us maintain the legacy of everyone who lived here, getting up close and personal with the Middletons themselves. Thank you for participating in #GivingTuesday! . . . . #middletonplace #nationalhistoriclandmark #historic #plantation #housemuseum #collections #middletonfamily #givingtuesday #thankyou #thanksforyoursupport #keephistoryalive #supportyourlandmark #loveyourlandmark

When you give to Middleton Place Foundation (on Giving Tuesday and EVERY day!), either directly on our website or through Amazon Smile, you contribute not only to historical programs, objects, and buildings - you also have a hand in maintaining the oldest landscaped gardens in America. As camellia season kicks off with the blooming of the sasanquas, we hope you are able to join us in person and see the results of gifts just like yours. Thank you for your help in preserving the work and dedication of generations of skilled botanists and horticulturists. . . . #middletonplace #nationalhistoriclandmark #historic #plantation #gardens #givingtuesday #thankyou #thanksforyoursupport #keephistoryalive #camelliaseason #camelliasasanqua #liveoaks #octagonalgarden #oldestlandscapedgarden #supportyourlandmark #loveyourlandmark
