54 Hasell Street is perhaps the oldest residence in Charleston – by that I mean the oldest building built specifically as a residence (instead of later being used as one), dating from 1712.  At the time this house was built, it was “in the country”. Colonel William Rhett (and, yes, if Rhett Butler had been real, Col. Rhett would have been “his people”) purchased property outside of the original walled city, about 2 blocks north of Major Daniels’ Creek where the City Market is now situated.  Rhett called his new property of about 30 acres “Rhettsbury”.

Your list of things to do in Charleston may be getting long, but it’s essential that you make room for Rainbow Row. This series of 13 brightly-colored houses along the waterfront is one of Charleston’s most photographed spots and is a spectacular site to see.

While its architecture and beautiful pastel coloring are to be admired, Rainbow Row’s history is equally as captivating. As many of you already know, Charleston is a place steeped with history in every neighborhood, and Rainbow Row is no exception.

Why is Rainbow Row so brightly colored? How did it become one of the most recognized historical sites in Charleston? We’ve got the answers to your burning questions right here!

17 Chalmers Street is known as the Pink House primarily because...it's pink.

The Pink House is a favorite of artists, photographers, and visitors for several reasons. First is the color. Second is the wonderful gambrel tile roof. Third is the unusual shape when viewed from the left corner side; instead of being blocked by a house on the left, there is a parking lot. Fourth is the fact that the street in front is paved with cobblestones. All of which adds up to extremely and undeniably picturesque.

Following up on their January announcement, the Charleston Library Society and The Charleston Trust U.K. last week announced details for a new collaborative literary festival taking place in Charleston, SC from November 2-5, 2017. The festival, called Charleston to Charleston, is modeled on, and formed in collaboration with, the Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex, home to the Charleston Festival, one of England’s premier literary gatherings.

Charleston's built landscape is one of America's greatest works of public art. Centuries-worth of meticulous ironwork provides a visual feast for anyone exploring the downtown peninsula of Charleston. Wherever you look, you are rewarded with the rich architectural details that help give Charleston its vibrant sense of place.

Each design feature -- whether the sweeping porches of the Charleston single houses or scrollwork atop the Georgian columns fronting homes on the Battery -- illuminates parts of the city's past and provides the backdrop for Charleston's elaborate ballet of life. Downtown buildings are ...

The next few posts will concentrate on several of our oldest buildings in Charleston, and we will begin with the John Lining House at 106 Broad Street, on the northwest corner of King and Broad Streets. Immediately outside of the original walled city, the Lining House was constructed before 1715. We don't know how long before 1715, but we do have documentation that the dwelling existed in that year.

Sometimes, I get on Pinterests kicks. I think that I can save the blank walls of my apartment with crafty DIY’s that involve exotic materials such as le Mod Podge, la popsicle-stick, essence de wasabi tape. And more times than not, I end up with a giant ball of glue stuck to my coffee table.

That was when I decided to start looking into other options to decorate my walls.

As I perused the interwebs, I found an online art gallery called the Charleston Artist Collective.

Charleston's award-winning Charleston Food Tours is adding to its culinary tour offerings with a new option that includes a cooking demonstration and tasting.
