About

The Strong Women of the South History Tour is an exploration of historical Charleston from the perspective of the founding mothers and women of every color who contributed to our Great American Dream. Along the way, you will discover the beautiful truth: Charleston is the matriarchal capital of the western world, a city once owned and controlled by women.
Our exploration begins at the alleged execution site of America's First Female Serial Killer. We stand in the spot where she met her fate and hear her story. Then, you get to decide: was she really a serial killer or a woman protecting her rights!
Next, we visit the homes and sites of the “Old Maids," Women’s Rights Activists, Printers, Artisans, Madams, Shopkeepers, and Plantation owners while discovering their contributions and conundrums, all written over by modern history.
Last, we visit the homes and shops of the women who built this great city.

Itinerary

Hear the stories of the beautiful, the bold, and the bad women who helped create the American dream.
We stand in the shadow of the Wentworth Mansion, the largest-standing palace in the city. We ask the question, "who were the most important women that lived on this street?"
The mother of old Charles Town, the mother of America, and the mother of modern Charleston: hear the stories of the Strong Women of the South.
