The Edmondston-Alston House

Enjoyed a tour of the Edmondston-Alston House today. Despite the rain, and wind, it was a beautiful house tour. The House was one of the first dwellings built in the newly created neighborhood in 1825. Although photos are not allowed inside of the House, I’ve included a few of the exterior below. For more information and to purchase tickets for the tour, go to One item of note, black wreaths and purple bunting were hung in memoriam for Lieutenant John Julius Pringle Alston, who was a First Lieutenant in the SC Artillery and who died September 20th, 1863 of Typhoid contracted in the defense of South Carolina at Fort Sumter and Battery Wagner.
