Decided to tour Georgetown instead of Charleston for the umpteenth time. Got a very nice tour of the Kaminsky property by well informed guides. Lasts about an hour and you are treated to a glimpse of days gone by. Highly recommend this tour.

Thank you for leaving a review of your tour of the museum. Please accept our apologies for the large size of your group. As you mentioned, one of our volunteer docents called in sick we were not able to find a substitute on short notice.

This is where my husband and I was married on Oct.1,1995. It was gorgeous. Married tight in front of water fountain. Had our reception on the grounds. A Beautiful Home to visit and a big part of our History.
