 Doin' The Charleston Walking Tour

May

Saturday, May 27, 2017 | Doin' The Charleston Walking Tour

In the early 1900s, Charleston experienced a renaissance fueled by artists, writers, musicians, poets, and preservationists. Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, Elizabeth ONeill Verner, and Alfred Hutty created lovely intimate scenes of the old city to sell to tourists. Charlestons Poetry Society, one of the first of its kind, was formed in 1920. Dubose Heyward collaborated with George Gershwin to transform his novel Porgy into the opera Porgy and Bess. Jenkins Orphanage jazz bands played in the streets of Charleston, then New York and London. The arts brought much needed attention to the rather beleaguered city and lent support to the budding preservation movement in Charleston. In partnership with Spoleto, details coming soon.

October

Thursday, October 5, 2017 | The 41st Annual Fall Tours

Fall is Charleston’s best-kept secret. With pleasant weather and light crowds, what could be better than to take advantage of the many opportunities the Preservation Society has arranged? Whether it is one of our self-paced walking tours of private houses and gardens, a “Living in History” lunch lecture, a plantation tour, or an “Up-close and Personal” tour, there is something for everyone. Tickets go on sale on June 1st.
