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 http://www.edmondstonalston.com/visit/tickets.html. 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.
