Guides at each property will explain the architecture, relate the stories of the generations of people who lived there, and delve into the more recent efforts to preserve their histories.
Lunch lectures at 82 Queen will provide a more in-depth study as local historians and professionals discuss a variety of subjects. The events will cover Charleston’s architecture, its resilient people, and endearing gardens. One lecture will present a photography primer to enable you to better capture pictures of this beautiful city.
Guests will also have the opportunity to take one or more “Up Close and Personal” tours. Guests will go behind-the-scenes and tour seldom-seen houses and gardens. Topics will be in-depth and led by professional guides and instructors.
The Plantation Picnic Tour will visit the barrier island of Edisto with a picnic served along the way. Transportation is included.
