The Places & People That Helped Shape Charleston

The past is everywhere you look in Charleston – triumphs and tragedies, beauty and brutality, infused in art and architecture and etched in stone. We believe that every memory, every place, every story woven together is who we are. So, as a people and culture, we exist not apart from brick and mortar, marsh and mud, cobblestone and wrought iron, but together with – and within them. That’s part of what makes our historic properties so compelling and exciting. Not only are these spaces the perfect exhibition space for our fine and decorative art collections, they also reveal stories about our history, our culture, who we were – and who we are now.
