64th Annual Plantation Tours

The Sixty Fourth Annual Plantation Tours of plantations and town houses in and near Georgetown will be held March 25 & 26, 2010. The majority of the plantations and town houses are privately owned and graciously shared with the Episcopal Church Women of Prince George, Winyah, Parish once a year. A different group of homes is on tour each day.

As part of the tour of pre-Revolutionary and antebellum churches, town houses and plantations, visitors are invited to the Winyah Indigo Society Hall for tea each afternoon.

Home baked goods, local art from the Georgetown Watercolor Society, and books from the Georgetown Historical Society will be available for sale in the Parish Hall.

We also offer Midday Musical Moments on the Friday and Saturday, at noon for about 30 minutes in Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church, featuring guest soloists and our music director.

Houses will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Please allow a full day for each day’s tour. Histories and maps showing the routes for the day are provided with tickets. Hosts and hostess will be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the houses that are open. Visitors provide their own transportation. Only cars and vans are allowed on the tours because of the many low-hanging oak limbs and soft roadbeds. NO BUSES, please.

All Visitors are requested to wear low heeled shoes for their own comfort, as well, as for the protection of the old floors and rugs. You are also reminded that no photographs may be taken inside homes.
