The Wickliffe House


The Wickliffe House is operated by Mediterra Catering. Mediterra has over 14 years of experience catering parties in the Greater Charleston area.

The Wickliffe House is a magnificent 5000 square foot Charleston town home located in Radcliffboro, a historic downtown neighborhood just steps away from the Medical University of South Carolina. Perfect for weddings, corporate events and social galas, the mansion is an eclectic mix of elegant interior, traditional wide piazza and adjacent lawn.

Accommodating up to 160 guests for a sit-down dinner and 300 guests for a cocktail reception, this outstanding Greek Revival mansion was built in 1850 by John Hume Lucas, a wealthy planter.

The columns of the front portico and the giant order columns of the piazza have Tower of the Winds capitals, a form of Greek Corinthian which was very popular with Charleston architects and builders. The house’s interior boasts rich plasterwork and woodwork of the period.

The house was donated by Miss Margaret Wickliffe of West Union, S.C., to the Health Sciences Foundation of the Medical University of South Carolina, and restored in 1977 as the faculty house.
