Visiting Charleston: Late October is one of the best times to visit Charleston. The weather is mild and perfect for guided walking tours or horse-drawn-carriage ones. It’s also time for the Annual Fall Tour of Homes, during which the private interiors of some of the nation’s most exceptional historic houses are opened. Visit historic gardens, colonial estates, ante-bellum plantations, Fort Sumter, and more. And for all you golfers, there are a dozen or more public and semi-public courses that would warm the cockles of a golfer’s heart.
Lodging: To assist those coming for the weekend, rooms were reserved at the Kings Courtyard Inn in the heart of historic Charleston.
Thanks: We thank not only Henry and Susan Smythe, but also Howard Evert ’70 and Roy Niedermayer ’69 as well as the Class officers of 1969, 1970, and 1971 for helping put this together.
