Festival of Houses and Gardens

2 Meeting Street (Carrington-Carr House): Constructed ca. 1890-92. No place is quite like Two Meeting Street Inn, the jewel in the crown of Charleston’s historic inns. Waring P. Carrington acquired the site for this house in 1889 and gave his daughter a generous gift of $75,000 upon her wedding, which was used to construct the residence. The Inn overlooks Battery Park (White Point Garden) and Charleston Harbor and showcases curved piazzas, arched columns, tiffany windows, and its distinctive white turret. The Inn proudly continues a 60-year legacy of luxury accommodations and genuine Southern hospitality.
