The Aiken-Rhett House is interesting in that it has not been renovated but preserved. You take an audio tour through the house which allows you to stop, ponder, and imagine. I was especially impressed with the kitchen/slave quarters. Maybe impressed is not the correct wording - amazed would be better. You stand there and it is very easy to imagine what life/activity must have been like in the mid-19th century. Slavery is a black mark in our history but we cannot forget. Another room that impressed me was the ballroom on the second floor. It was easy to see, in my mind's eye, men and women dressed to the hilt enjoying a grand ball. If you are interested in history see this house!
