They have been lovers of the established and experimental, the rare, beautiful, odd and unusual. Our history is a blend of beauty and pain, grace and war, great storms and calm seas.
The Charleston Museum digs into attics and archives. We pore over ancient artifacts, journals, and albums. We study, document, preserve, interpret, and share. We do it for the electric joy of discovery. The stories and humanity revealed. But perhaps even more, we do it for what it inspires within us. The thoughts that ask us to rethink our past and our place in the world. The thoughts that spark a conversation not just about who we were, but who we are – and who we can be. We are all a story. And our story starts here.Historic Charleston Foundation is an advocacy organization advancing the mission of historic preservation.
