Martha Middleton Wallace has been a practicing archaeologist for over 25 years.  Her unique perspective and information will leave you wanting more as you sit and sip lemonade relaxing in an 18th century courtyard.

Maggie Rice recently returned to her hometown of Charleston, SC after years of working and traveling in various parts of the world. She received her Masters Degree in History from the College of Charleston prior to her adventures abroad. A lifelong friend of the Middleton family, she feels that guiding historical tours has brought all full circle. Her direct ancestors (surname Aiken) came to “Charles Town” in the 1700s, making her an 11th generation South Carolinian.
