Tour bus makes Walhalla stop
Walhalla is one leg for a tour bus carrying 50 people from Charleston. The tour bus made a stop this afternoon at the Walhalla Steak House, as part of a two-day tour of the Golden Corner area. Tracy Todd says today’s tourists are volunteer tour guiders and interpreters from Charleston’s historic Middleton Place, famous for its landscape gardens from the 18th century. Todd serves as vice president of Middleton Place museums. He calls Middleton Place a mini-Colonial Williamsburg. In Pickens, Anderson, and Oconee the group is checking out historic spots and, as Todd put, stopping at every antique store they can find. While here, the Charleston visitors are staying at Clemson University’s Martin Inn.
