Archives and Research

One of the many ways Historic Charleston Foundation seeks to protect Charleston's architectural, historical and cultural integrity is through scholarly research and documentation. In addition to maintaining the archival and library resources in the Margaretta Childs Archives, Foundation staff members can also offer advice to those researching Charleston's architecture and history.

The Margaretta Childs Archives is located in the Capt. James Missroon House, 40 East Bay Street, and is open by appointment only.  Contact the Foundation's Archivist/Librarian at (843) 724-8490 to schedule an appointment or for more information on researching a historic property.
