Only a half-day’s drive from Asheville lies another world: Charleston and the South Carolina Low Country. We will explore this intriguing world and the history of the plantations that made South Carolina the richest of the American colonies. We will look at life and work on the plantations from colonial days through the post-Civil War era and what the visitor might see touring this world today.
