The Aiken-Rhett House and the Nathaniel Russell House offer a $16 combo admissions ticket which effectively permits you to tour the second house for $6 after paying the normal $10 admission fee for the first house (October 2012 prices).
As others have noted, Aiken-Rhett is preserved as it has been found and is unrestored. Nathaniel Russell is restored. Aiken-Rhett offers an audio tour on earphones; you proceed at your own pace. Nathaniel Russell offers tours by docent.
Both homes are worth seeing. I purchased the combo ticket and believe that I received the best of both types of home and tour.
