KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Five opulent homes on Kiawah Island southwest of Charleston are being opened to the public as part of the annual Kiawah Island Art and House Tour.

The 14th annual tour is slated for Friday. Over the years, proceeds from ticket sales have raised $1.25 million for the Gibbes Museum of Art in downtown Charleston.

Visitors get to see not only the palatial homes on the upscale resort island, but also get to see art objects inside those homes.

This year, one of the homes has a 16th Century sink acquired in Rome and kitchen beams from 200-year-old barns in upstate New York. Another has ceiling beams that came from an old bank in Pennsylvania.

Other homes feature collections of paintings of birds and lithographs.
