This is a great little place to tour. It is conveniently located in Charleston. Also they rent it out for parties. I think it is worth a look.

Actually it was the Craik-Patton farm, one of my friends got married there a few years ago and had her reception there as well. Was quaint old place with great screened porches and a nice lawn. Was a fantastic place for a wedding
