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. This year’s tours run from October 3 – November 2. Different properties are featured each day, so whether you wish to learn about great periods in early American history or simply want to enjoy the gracious Charleston lifestyle, these tours will allow you to experience all the beauty and charm of historic Charleston.

In addition to traditional tours, try “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.

Founded in 1920, the Preservation Society of Charleston is the oldest community-based, membership, historic preservation organization in the United States of America, whose mission is to inspire the involvement of all who dwell in the Lowcountry to honor and respect Charleston’s material and cultural heritage.
