The Evolving Waterfront: A History of Land Reclamation on the Charleston Peninsula
Join us for an illustrated history of the growth of the Charleston peninsula, including changes to the river fronts, draining creeks to create streets, and the challenges of living in a coastal city at sea level that have hampered residents for over three hundred years. Our speaker, Christina Butler, is an accomplished historian and preservationist. A professor at the American College of the Building Arts, she is also a licensed contractor and owner of Butler Preservation L.C.
