Candlelight Tours of the Aiken-Rhett House
October 19 – 22, 2022

Historic Charleston Foundation (HCF) invites you to visit the Aiken-Rhett House for a unique candlelight tour. Step into some of the more dangerous and tragic sides of history and lived experience in Charleston, SC. Weaving local stories and legends through each room of the preserved-as-found 1820s historic house, Museum curators will lead guests through a new route, with new information, for a truly unique experience to fit the autumn season. 

Four, 45-minute tours will be scheduled between 6:00 and 8:00 pm on October 19 through 22 at the Aiken-Rhett House Museum. The historic house will be illuminated by candlelight – bring an extra lantern or flashlight if you feel so inclined. House Museum is not handicap accessible or stroller friendly.
