PLEASE NOTE: Most of the properties on the Anson Street Tour will be gardens. We will also include experts at sites along your tour route who will highlight the stories of this unique neighborhood and how it went from an area that was threatened with “urban blight” in the mid-1900s to becoming a premier residential area on the Charleston peninsula through Historic Charleston Foundation’s first in the nation Revolving Fund and nationally recognized Ansonborough Rehabilitation Project. You will also hear the story of the 36 “Gaillard Graves,” an African American cemetery, unearthed during the construction of the present-day Gaillard Center. This is an intriguing neighborhood, and we know you will enjoy the tour we’ve put together for ticketholders.
