WHILE YOU’RE HERE – TAKE A STROLL AROUND TOWN AND ENJOY A BIT OF CHARLESTON, SC HISTORY
Charleston, the oldest city in the state of South Carolina, was founded as Charles Town, honoring King Charles II of England, in 1670.
South Carolina declared its independence from Britain on the steps of the Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon in 1774 and the British attacked the town in force three times, resulting in the British capture of the city. British continued to hold Charlestown for over a year and Charlestown was the last location to be surrendered in South Carolina when the British left quietly on December 14, 1782.
The Civil War began in the Charleston harbor when the Confederates bombarded Union soldiers at Fort Sumter, South Carolina on April 12, 1861.
Still today our city is bursting with Southern charm and hospitality. Even though it offers some of the most modern amenities, is a leader in technology, and cutting-edge medical care the city feels a bit like it’s suspended in time thanks to the preservation of its rich history. I’ve lived here since 1971 and often find something new and exciting to see around this beautiful historic town.
