I went with a dear friend to the Church Street Tour last October. It was a delightful day to tour the selected homes on Church Street. I believe we were able to tour 5 or 6 homes and the same amount of different gardens. One home stood out the most. The home of the author "Catch Me if you Can". It was so much fun exploring the homes and gardens and seeing how the current owners have been sensitive to keep the historical nature of the buildings and original gardens. I received many great ideas from touring the various Charleston Gardens that day and have incorporated several of the ideas in my own garden. I look forward to exploring more homes with a friend this year. (only a few days from now). I recommend to seriously consider joining one of the tours if you have the opportunity.

Lots of walking but well worth the effort. The houses are so different and so interesting. All are beautifully kept, with well maintained gardens. Enjoyed learning about the history and reading all the plagues on lots of the houses. It was a very hot day but an enjoyable one. Would recommend the walk just to know more about the history of Charleston.

We just love walking around the old part of Charleston and looking at the lovely old mansions. Many of them are right there on the waterfront and on the park. What a gift to the nation to care for these lovely old homes!

The members of the Charleston Historic Society work really hard to make these homes accessible. Booking this fall tour with them will probably be your only chance to see inside some of the homes, and hear the history of the structure and the gardens. And Fall is a great time to visit this grand lady of a city.
