This tour will take you through the old walled, historic district. Discuss the city, buildings, and architecture from the founding to today.  You will see all the major sites: Rainbow Row, The Exchange, The Battery, etc.  End your tour in a garden on Church street with lemonade.

Walk with a 13th generation Charlestonian.  The Middleton Sisters, Anne and Martha, have extensive knowledge of the city and its role in early American history.  Deeply rooted in Charleston, their ancestors were on the first boat that arrived in 1670 (the Carolina.)  They also trace 9 generations to Arthur Middleton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  The local perspective is invaluable.  You will have a great sense of the city's, life, economy, and personality by the end of the walk.

The garden at the end is located at 86 Church.  They will have lemonade, maps, books, and artifacts presented in the courtyard with ample seating.  The garden itself was visited by Prince Charles in February of 1990 after Hurricane Hugo plowed through the city in September of 1989.  Philip Middleton (Anne and Martha's father) had diligently worked to bring in Welsh slate and a trained roofer for the extensive work that was needed in the city.  The authenticity and reputation of Welsh slate roofing merited the effort to bring back some history when so much of it was lost.  It then caught the attention of The Prince of Whales who was accompanied by his cousin, the King of Greece, to the garden for a short visit.

Come enjoy a memorable and meaningful walk through our old port city.
