“An unexpected treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by to waste a little time before a tour we had scheduled later on in the day. We were immediately taken by the charm and kindness of the ladies in the museum store. Our docent was kind, engaging and knowledgeable. She kept by two boys (ages 6 & 17) involved throughout the tour. The house and the antiques were breathtaking and I learned a great deal about Georgetown and rice plantations. This is a do not miss tour if you are in Georgetown! We will come back and do it again next year.

“A great historical landmark.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The curators of this historical home offer an excellent room-by-room tour. Our guide spent over an hour explaining the history of the home's construction, its antique furnishings, and the families that lived there over many years. A must see if you're planning to visit Georgetown or any of the surrounding areas.

“The home of a Georgetown mayor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Interesting home - the house of one of the 6 Jewish mayors of Georgetown. On the water, it's not always open, so check if you want to visit. Cute, tiny gift shop.

“Great guide - 2 beautiful homes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The house that grew over time. Another interesting Southern lady. Lots of personal memorabilia in the house. Includes a walk thru the house next door.

“Very Interesting...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I went on a tour of this lovely antebellum home in Georgetown SC in April 2013. The home is built on a bluff overlooking the Sampit River, such a beautiful property!

The antique furnishings are magnificent and date back hundreds of years.

Our Docet (guide) was Doug and he was extremely informative. He has been doing this for 13 years and it shows! He is a volunteer and really has a passion for what he does.

We were a group of 7 and took the 11am tour on a Monday of which we were the only people on the tour. That was a bonus!

I highly recommend the Kaminski House tour.
