Embrace History on the 40th Fall Tour of Homes in Charleston

40th Fall Tour of Homes

Not an actual house on the tour, although we wish it was.

The 40th Fall Tour of Homes takes place this October and if you’ve been to this event before, you already know what you’re missing out on. The Preservation Society has arranged plenty of opportunities for locals and visitors alike to take a tour of historical homes. From self-paced walking tours to lunch lectures, there’s something for everyone and we here at Mama’s Used Cars have the details!

Take to the streets on October 27th for the Tradd Street Tour. This tour reflects Charleston’s architecture from the city’s oldest houses to several 20th century models. The street also runs from the Cooper River to the Ashley River, the only street to do so, making it a popular spot both back then and in the present day.

Taking place on October 29th, the Battery Tour gives visitors a closer look at the early houses built at the time the city was first expanding. Several of the houses were built a few years prior to the American Civil War and survived their front-row seat. Having survived fierce weather, military occupation, and artillery strikes, these homes offered a close-up of history in the making.

Closing out the fall event is the South of Broad Tour. Showcasing some of the city’s most significant properties, ranging from the 1700s to the late 1900s, the properties are perfect for history and architectural lovers alike. Adapted for a modern day style, the homes show how southerners lived for ages. Effectively a trip back in time, the South of Broad Tour takes place on October 30th.
