The Fall Tours
This fall experience some of the finest,
most historic houses and gardens in America


In walking about Charleston, I was reminded of some of the older country towns in England, the appearance of the city is highly picturesque, inasmuch as every house seems built to the owner’s particular taste; and in one street you seem to be in an old English town, and in another in some continental city of France or Italy. This variety is extremely pleasing to the eye.

- Fanny Kemble on visiting Charleston, South Carolina in 1838

Thank you to our Fall Tour attendees for supporting the Preservation Society of Charleston. The proceeds directly benefit the Society's ability to advocate for a better Charleston. The Chairman of the Preservation Society, Betsy Cahill, summed up our work in the most recent Preservation Progress magazine by paraphrasing the words inscribed on the stone plaque on the grave of the 18th century architect, Sir Christopher Wren, "Member, if you seek our monument, look around you."

Save the dates for next year's tour, October 8- November 7, 2020. Plan now to join the celebration as the Preservation Society turns 100!

Thank you to our 2019 Fall Tours Sponsors
