Wanna see the real life filming location used for Kevin Kline's Southern Mansion in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at Tidalholm House, located in Beaufort, South Carolina. Google Map

After leaving the church, the road into town is Bay Street coming east into the city of Beaufort off of Ribaut Avenue. The water view is low tide on the Beaufort River. The bridge in the distance is the Wood Bridge. It's a draw bridge on the Intercoastal Waterway that goes from Beaufort to Lady's Island crossing the Beaufort River.

The bridge they actually drive across is the Cat Island bridge off Ribaut Avenue. It's about half way between Beaufort and Port Royal. It is not close particularly close or related to the road in the previous scene. [Thanks to Bill Shearer]

The church is Sandhill Baptist Church located at 15480 Pocotaligo Rd, just West of Varnville SC. [Thanks to daryl rigby]

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
