Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens

Join the Preservation Society of Charleston in experiencing Charleston’s historic houses and gardens during the annual Fall Tours of Homes, History & Architecture, October 3—November 2. Now in its 43rd year, the Preservation Society of Charleston’s annual Fall Tours are better than ever with fresh, new programs and longtime favorites. Experience Charleston’s stunning private houses, intimate gardens, churches, and public buildings as you stroll through our historic streets. The Fall Tours serve as the Society’s foremost annual fundraiser and we invite you to join us and support the work of the Society. Curated Tours, Garden Walks, and Talks. In its third year, this series of tours will let guests dig deeper into what makes Charleston gardens so unique. From the interesting and largely sub-tropical plant material to the fresh designs, these gardens are sure to delight all of the senses. Led by professionals in the fields of horticulture and design, guests will visit gardens that are rarely open to the public. A professional in the field of horticulture and design will lead guests through gardens focusing on the challenges and triumphs of gardening in the Lowcountry. Photography Walkabout and Workshop. Richard D. Spencer has studied the City and learned the best times to photograph the many architectural elements and details of some of Charleston’s oldest and most picturesque streets and alleys. He will share his tips and techniques each Friday morning on a walkabout. Photographers and cameras of all levels are welcome. Traditional House and Garden Tours. For 43 years these tours have opened some of America’s most exquisite homes and gardens to our guests. Each residence in the Old and Historic District – built in Colonial days up to and through the 20th century – tells its own story. Docents at each site will greet you and share the rich history of those who lived there. Haunts and Haints: Spirits Among Us. Known as the Holy City for its many houses of wo
