About the event
Every odd numbered year, the Beaufort County Open Land Trust is permitted to host tours at Auldbrass Plantation in Yemassee for one weekend as a fundraiser for the organization, and tours are now scheduled for the fall of 2023.
The Open Land Trust’s 2023 Auldbrass Tours are scheduled to be held from Thursday, November 2nd through Saturday, November 4th, from 830am to 530pm.
The house was designed by famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and is considered to be one of Wright’s greatest design achievements of his life.
This year, there is a special event added on Saturday, November 4th, from 6 to 9pm called “Auldbrass After Dark.” This is a special cocktail party plus a tour. Tickets are limited and they include food and beverages, live entertainment and tours of both the grounds and of the main house, after dark.
According to the Open Land trust’s Eventbrite listing for the event, for the daytime tours, there will be morning and afternoon Tickets. The division of tickets is to assist with the flow of the main house portion of the tour.
A buyer of a morning ticket has the ability to tour the main house from 830am to 1230pm. You may stay on property longer but your ticket restricts you to the main house portion of the tour to the morning session.
A buyer of an afternoon ticket has the ability to tour the main house from 1231pm to 530pm. Attendees may come earlier or stay on property longer but your ticket restricts you to the main house portion of the tour to the afternoon session.
The only exception is on Saturday Afternoon.
Saturday Afternoon tickets will end at 4:00 pm to make way for Auldbrass After Dark.
All ticket proceeds go to the important work of the Beaufort County Open Land Trust, and you can get more information and purchase your tickets here.
A beautiful and historic Lowcountry spot originally settled back in 1736, Wright’s plantation was purchased in 1987 by Hollywood producer and Wright fan, Joel Silver, famous for films including Die Hard, The Matrix and Lethal Weapon.
The house, stable complex and kennels of the 4,000-acre estate on the banks of the Combahee River were designed by Wright from 1939 through 1941, and it was then renamed Auldbrass.
