this is a weird concept that i respect but do not understand. the guide said this house has been preserved in the state it was in 1860. but in fact, at the mansion, i was told this house is preserved in the state it was after the damages caused by hurricane Hugo. except for one room, all the others have peeling wallpaper, some scrap of furniture.. it is all very strange. i questionned this preservation. why preserve something that has been damaged by a natural disaster.? i was told very kindly but very firmly that this is the way it was decided to be. . Since it was the first mansion i visited in charleston, i asked just as politely if all the other mansions were following the same principle and i was told that, no, the others were restored to their former splendor. So be reassured. this mansion is an exception. it was interesting in its own eerie way but if you dont spend too much time in charleston, i would skip it.
