We visited the Kaminski house and the adjacent Stewart Parker house. Both houses date from the earliest days of Georgetown. Both houses had architectural changes from their original construction but have remained true to the period for the most part. There was an interesting collection of furnishings in the Kaminski house that you are unlikely to see anywhere else. I... More

Only two people on the two o'clock tour so the docent was able to spend extra time with us. The house is a step back in time. Per the wishes of the last owner everything remains as it was. Great stop in Georgetown

This was a beautiful venue for a wedding. Less one star because they really made things difficult for the wedding planning/event, very strict rules and people walking around the place while we were getting ready. That said, the rules I can understand, it is a museum after all! The place itself will be an amazing memory of the day. The... More

Everything is loving cared for, and tended to. Our guide was Sue, very knowledgeable and had a sense... More

We visited this home while visiting myrtle beach and didn't really know anything about the house. We had the best time. It is a guided tour and the lady was so nice and very interesting. The house itself is beautiful. The only bad part is not being able to take pictures. The price isn't bad and its worth every penny.... More

This house museum overlooks the river and was donated to the city of Georgetown with its furnishings by the Kaminski family. The site consists of 2 houses, a gift shop and a nice little building with clean restrooms. Our tour guide, Frankie Hills, was very knowledgeable and had a true enthusiasm for the house and its lovely furniture, antiques collected... More

The Kaminski House and the Stewart-Parker House are both included in the museum tour and sit on the Sampit River. We decided not to do the tour of the Kaminski house since pictures could not be taken. Their reason was that there are a lot of valuable antiques inside. This really didn't make sense to me so we decided just... More

Visited the Kaminski House during a day in Georgetown. My husband knows how much I enjoy history so we took the tour. Our guide, Sue, was so nice and accomodating. We were the only ones on the tour so she gave us extra special attention, even seeing some items not privy to others when leading a larger crowd. She made... More

We came across this house tour during a day trip to Georgetown. With only one other couple we toured the house and the one next door. The guide was very informative and also answered all our questions. The house dates back to 1700's but was gifted as a museum from Mrs Kaminski when she died, in 1972. The furnishing have... More
