Historical Homes and Lunch at Wentworth Mansion - Charleston - 2018 ( 6 Hours )
Charleston, SC, United States | 27 Aug 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Sightseeing • Culture, History & Arts

Nestled between the Ashley and the Cooper Rivers, Charleston is one of America’s most historic and beautiful cities. Charleston in the 18th century was considered the cultural center of the colonies. The inhabitants’ appreciation for the finer things of life was evidenced not only by the style and fine furnishings of the homes in the city, but also by their lovely and well attended gardens. The wealth from rice and cotton plantations as well as thriving commerce allowed planters and merchants to build elegant town houses. Not only were the homes beautiful but the public buildings and churches constructed during this period were magnificent.

Today you will see many of these buildings and visit two of these fantastic homes. The first stop will be at the Roper House built in 1838 by Robert William Roper, a wealthy planter. This house is considered one of the finest Greek Revival Houses in the US. It has been beautifully restored and is owned by the Classic American Homes Trust.

We will continue into the 19th century with a delicious luncheon accompanied by wine and beer at Circa 1886, a four diamond restaurant, located in the Carriage House of the Wentworth Mansion. This mansion in the Second Empire style was built by Silas Rodgers, a wealthy cotton factor between 1885 & 1887. After lunch a special tour of the mansion has been arranged.

We will then make our way back to the pier.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Resort casual with comfortable walking shoes for moderate walking. You will be walking the equivalent of 8 blocks on the walking portion of the tour. This portion will include the Roper House with 1 hour spent touring the Roper House. There are approximately 30 steps to the 2nd floor of the house & 20 steps to the third floor. There is an elevator in the house. At Circa 1886 guests will walk about 100 yards to the restaurant. There are no steps. To tour the Wentworth Mansion you will walk another 100 yards and up approximately 15 steps to reach the first floor of the house.
