Clip clop, clip clop... neighhhhh, snort, nicker, whinny, pbbbbb... "and over here to your left you'll see the Nathaniel Russell House. Built in 1809, it is one of America's most important neo-classical dwellings..."
Carriage tours through the historic district are a part of Charleston's charm, as they offer visitors a slow paced, leisurely view of the city's beautiful and historic setting. This 19th century mode of transportation is so authentic that you might imagine you glimpsed Rhett Butler strolling along a promenade, arm in arm with a lovely southern belle.
This is one of the images from inside this year's Festival of Houses and Gardens brochure (see the post for April 5th).
