Hampton Terrace to hold home tours next month

The Hampton Park Terrace historic homes tour starts at 1 p.m. Oct. 4 at Allan Park on Charleston’s peninsula.

A self-paced walking tour of 10 or more vintage houses will take place 1-4 p.m. Oct. 4 in Hampton Park Terrace on Charleston’s peninsula.

Mark Lang, a member of the Hampton Park neighborhood association board, says the group will host the tour of historic homes.

The special fall event will provide participants with a stroll through a unique historic Charleston neighborhood, the association says.

Hampton Park Terrace, situated near The Citadel and scenic Hampton Park, landed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 “for its unusual concentration of well-preserved early 20th century houses and bungalows,” the association says.

The tour aims to include interiors of at least 10 private homes, a number of which contribute to the National Register designation. The walking tour, in which participants can proceed at their own pace, will be held rain or shine.
