PRESERVATION SOCIETY

The Preservation Society is the oldest grass roots Preservation Society in America. It strikes a balance between progress and preservation by: cultivating an appreciation for Charleston's architecture and charm; advocating to save historic sites and objects; educating to pass on traditions and heritage  www.preservationsociety.org

Every Fall The Preservation Society holds its TOUR OF HOMES AND GARDENS.  Locals and out of town guests were fortunate that the Society came up with a socially distanced, safe plan to present Tours that showcased the outside and gardens of Charleston's treasures and supported the cause of preservation.

The Hat Ladies were beautifully represented in 2 of the houses on Tour

Archie - Sr. Docent

Elinor: One of the prettiest flowers in the garden

Pat: The other beautiful flower in the garden

Jayne was Senior Docent at another house and will be a Senior Docent the following weekend.  She has been recognized for her outstanding contribution to both The Preservation Society and Historic Charleston Foundation, often driving to town from her permanent home in Michigan to support their premier fundraisers

Hat Lady Corinne answered Jayne's call to join her...thanks to HER love of preservation and her love of Jayne!
