HISTORIC CHARLESTON FOUNDATION:

Chartered in 1947, Historic Charleston Foundation is a non-profit advocacy organization advancing the mission of historic preservation. As historic preservation has evolved into more than a movement to simply save historic buildings, the Foundation has broadened its scope into balancing the needs of modern society with protecting the sensitive fabric of the historic district.

Historic Charleston Foundation champions the historic authenticity, cultural character, and livability of the Charleston region through advocacy, stewardship, and community engagement.

Your ticket purchases and donations power our work. THANK YOU.

    The information posted makes me want to attend, with my husband. I read most all of the information but I didn’t see the price for the various tours and activities. Nearby accommodations would be helpful as well.
    We live in Hardeeville, S.Carolina just off the 95 exit.

  4. Janet says:

    Many years ago for our anniversary, my husband and I attended a candlelight house and garden tour. It was in September or October, is this the same tour/festival and it has been moved to the spring? We were hoping to come back for it in the fall.

  5. Diane F. says:

    I do not see any “plan your visit” link. Am I just missing it?!

  6. Diane Kulik says:

    Are all the house and garden tours only scheduled for weekends? I am only in Charleston April 4 – 8. I only see walking tours on those dates.

    Thank you!
