Preservation Society of Charleston’s Annual Fall Candlelight Tours of Homes and Gardens- October 3,10,17,24,2014:
The Preservation Society was founded in 1920 by a small group of Charlestonians concerned with the increasing threat to one of America’s outstanding collections of 18th, 19th and 20th century architecture. The Fall Candlelight Tour is the Society’s primary annual fund-raising project, helping the Society to further the aim of preserving the wonderful architecture. This six week event is possible because owners of historic properties, loyal Society members, and dedicated volunteers join together to share the unique heritage of this National Historic Landmark city with you. Each night a different neighborhood opens up its distinguished homes to you, each with its own history and character.
