YEMASSEE – The Inn at Cotton Hall, one of South Carolina’s most notable and historical estates, will open its doors and grounds to the public for guided tours and a marketplace from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 26.

“We’ve made a major investment to enhance the entire Cotton Hall experience, from the home to the grounds, and we’re excited to show the public this beautiful historical grand estate,” Director of Events Amy Lane said.

Visitors will enjoy a guided tour of the newly redecorated grand home that will include a Q&A with the home’s decorator and refreshments. The Inn at Cotton Hall is a 10,000 square feet Georgian style home that sits alongside the Alley of the Oaks and has 26 rooms and nine baths.

The estate dates back to the late 1700s, while the current inn was built in the 1930s, nearly 100 years after the original home was built, which was later destroyed by General William T. Sherman’s troops during the Civil War.

Today, The Inn at Cotton Hall is the setting for beautiful Lowcountry weddings and special events.

In addition to guided home tours, there will be a Barn Sale and vendor market featuring local artisans and crafts. Visitors can stroll through the Alley of the Oaks and roam the grounds, stables and gardens. Food and beverages will be available from an on-site food truck.

Tickets are $40 and includes the guided home tour and access to the grounds of the estate. For tickets and more information, go to https://cottonhallhousetour.eventbrite.com or @cottonhallevents on Facebook and Instagram.
