View from 40 East Bay, Event Location

Historic Charleston Foundation is jumping right into 2023 with the first PreserVISIONist event, a Lowcountry Oyster Roast by the Battery on February 23. This event is the first of four debut PreserVISIONist events designed with our young professionals, in mind. We’re partnering with Lowcountry Oyster Company to bring a joyful and casual event to the Captain James Missroon House (HCF headquarters) and enjoy the views, learn more about the Foundation, what to look forward to in the year, and most importantly, CONNECT with like-minded young professionals with a passion for historic preservation, history and Charleston. Members receive their benefits with advance notice of the event and event discount. Proceeds from the PreserVISIONist Oyster Roast will directly benefit the Foundation and our mission-driven work. Tickets for this event are $40 for PreserVISIONist members and $50 for non-members. (details below).
