This is the only walking tour in Charleston that includes a tour of the historic Edmondston-Alston House. Charleston's history and unique way of life can be greatly attributed to its location on a small peninsula bounded by two rivers. The southern tip of this peninsula, known as the Battery, has become one of the city's most treasured sites and no visit to Charleston would be complete without touring this historic district. Starting and ending at the Edmondston-Alston House, take an hour-long guided walking tour South of Broad Street and learn not only about the area's rich history, but about the extended Alston family during the years before the Civil War. Your experience will conclude with a 30 minute tour of the Edmondston-Alston House with its magnificent view of Charleston Harbor.
