36th Annual Fall Candlelight Tours of Homes and Gardens

36th Annual Fall Candlelight Tours of Homes and Gardens

Take a stroll under the lights of Charleston’s doorways during The Preservation Society of Charleston’s 36th Annual Fall Tours of Homes and Gardens from September 27 – October 28. Tours are given Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, from 7-10 pm and Sunday afternoons from 2-5 pm. Tours feature the interiors of architecturally significant privately owned homes, beautiful gardens, churches and public buildings of historic Charleston.

These are self-paced, self-guided walking tours with volunteer guides stationed in each house or garden; on average, eight to ten properties are included in each tour, which vary in architectural styles and periods. All tours are in historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Tours usually include properties on more than one street and often cover six to eight city blocks.

Tickets are $45 per person for each individual tour. For more information, call 843-722-4630 or visit
