Beyond the Big House: Tour & Storytelling

Kitchen buildings, carriage houses, back lots and slave dwellings have survived to tell the story of the enslaved in Charleston, their lives and labor. Tour-goers will visit six private sites, including the outbuildings of the renowned Miles Brewton House, c.1765, a National Historic Landmark. The property’s extensive collection of dependency buildings makes it one of the most complete Georgian townhouse complexes in America.

Following the tour, discover more about the history, achievements and daily lives of African Americans in antebellum Charleston with professional interpreters and storytellers in the back lot of the Aiken-Rhett House Museum, where the original kitchen building, laundry, carriage block and slave quarters survive.

2-5 p.m. Self-paced tour of outbuildings and back lots in Charleston's Old & Historic District (begins in the garden of the Nathaniel Russell House Museum, 51 Meeting Street)

4:30-6 p.m. Storytelling in the back lot of the Aiken-Rhett House Museum, 48 Elizabeth Street
