The tour focuses on the Robert Mills House
, which was designed by nationally prominent architect and South Carolina native, Robert Mills. Relating the story of Robert Mills and the history of the building, the tour teaches students about life in 19th-century South Carolina, the story of the preservation of the structure in the 1960s, and this National Historic Landmark's important architectural features.
For an additional $1 per student, students can take part in a craft activity, which they will be
able to take home after they are finished. Upon the request of teachers, students can make a cotton
boll angel, corn-husk doll, pine cone Christmas tree, play 19th-century games and participate in other crafts.
