The Heyward-Washington House is a historic site in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. It was built in 1772 by Daniel Heyward for his son, Thomas Heyward, Jr., who later became a well known patriot leader and signer of the Declaration of Independence. The property got its name from Heyward, and from the fact that it was the very house that George Washington stayed in while he was slated for a week-long stay in the city in 1791.

Currently, the Heyton-Washington House is operated as a historic house museum under the ownership and management of the Charleston Museum. The museum bought the property in 1929 and opened it as a public venue in 1930. It features 18th century furnishings, including a collection of locally made furniture pieces.
