The Sixty Sixth Annual Plantation Tours

Plantation

Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church offers their annual Plantation Tours in the spring. The dates are set for March 22 & 23, 2013.  Many of the plantations and town houses are privately owned and can only be seen by taking this tour. A different group of homes is on tour each day. The event is sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women of Prince George Winyah Parish.

Walk through alleyways of live oaks, magnificent estate houses and magnificent gardens. This is one weekend you will not want to miss. Houses will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. They are suggesting 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. Visit the Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church website for ticket information.
