Justin Schwebler, Preservation Manager

What is “preserved-as-found” and why is that preservation style utilized at the Aiken-Rhett House Museum? In honor of Preservation Month, we invite YOU to go behind-the-scenes of the Aiken-Rhett House Museum and focus on the specific preservation methods and techniques uniquely and expertly on display at this 1820s historic house museum. Go behind-the-scenes with the Foundation Preservation Manager, Justin Schwebler, to dive into what makes this property so unique in the preservation world with rare access to areas that are typically off limits to the public. This hauntingly beautiful home is the only one of its kind on Charleston’s peninsula and is rich in architectural and cultural history. For this special experience, enjoy a glass of wine on the charming piazzas while diving deeper into the world of historic preservation.

Tickets required for ages 15 and above (21+ required for refreshments). The space is limited and not handicap accessible due to the historic nature of the house, no elevator available. Tickets required. $40 each.
