ABOUT CHARLESTON RACONTEURS

View I Love the Lowcountry video

Quietly tucked away off today's beaten path, the cultural resources found along the Lowcountry's historic rivers - fine historic houses, archaeological remnants, antebellum chapels, and grand garden landscapes - are among the most exuberant found in the New World of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Carolina colony's economic, political and social development was closely tied to these aquatic highways, the lifeline upon which our plantation society grew, flourished, and was eventually destroyed. If you would like to explore authentic historic places whose patina hasn't been polished up for the tourism market, then we invite you to enjoy a day with us exploring the Carolina Lowcountry.
