Doin' the Charleston Walking Tour
Reservations Required; $20 per person

In the early 1900s, Charleston experienced a renaissance fueled by artists, writers, musicians, poets, and preservationists. Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, Elizabeth O’Neill Verner, and Alfred Hutty created lovely intimate scenes of the old city to sell to tourists. Charleston’s Poetry Society, one of the first of its kind, was formed in 1920. Dubose Heyward collaborated with George Gershwin to transform his novel Porgy into the opera “Porgy and Bess”. Jenkins Orphanage jazz bands played in the streets of Charleston, then New York and London. The arts brought much needed attention to the rather beleaguered city and lent support to the budding preservationist movement in Charleston. (2 hour tour, covering about a mile)

Grimke Sisters Walking Tour
Reservations Required; $20 per person

Sue Monk Kidd’s bestselling novel, The Invention of Wings (Jan. 2014), has brought the story of the Grimké sisters to light. Though infamous abolitionists and feminists in their day, Angelina and Sarah Grimké have remained obscure in American history and (mostly) unrecognized in Charleston, city of their birth. The popularity of Kidd’s novel led to the creation of this walking tour by Lee Ann Bain and Carol Ezell-Gilson as part of the Preservation Society’s Fall Tours this past October. The tour sold out every offering. For more information please visit The Grimké Sisters Tour.
