As we continue up Legare Street, we will stop at Number 14, known as the Simmons-Edwards House, but more famous for its “Pineapple Gates.”

Francis Simmons built 14 Legare Street around 1800. The brick single house, made taller due to the raised basement, is a good example of the Federal style of architecture.  Federal style was born out of and is similar to...

John Herald

It is dark and well past 10pm. The engine has been fighting him, but roars to life. It has spent many days being built in the hands of John Herald before finally breathing its first. This particular engine is destined for an old fire truck in Chicago. John will have to drive it up there to install it, too.

He credits his interest in auto repair and restoration to his Dad. John started working on cars...

Another school year is here, and with that, many teachers and administrators are well on their way to planning their school’s big field trips of the year. Many South Carolina schools choose to bring their students to Charleston due to its rich history, hands-on learning opportunities, and cultural landmarks. But just because you’re a parent chaperoning a school trip doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy Charleston’s vibrant culinary scene!


Here are some great options for satisfying your group's picky eaters (without sacrificing flavor) in Charleston:

Even though the Angel Oak is magnificent no matter how you shoot it, trying different angles will help us see it in a much more interesting way than the thousands of other eye-level, straight-on photos of the same subject. So get out there and try something different.

If you have photography questions or other topics you’d like us to explore, let us know!

We know a wall existed in 1818; over the ensuing years, the house has been modified and enhanced several times. The garden is a treat, and sometimes is open to the public during fall or spring tours. And, if you've got money, 32 Legare is currently on the market - for $19.5 million...

No matter who buys it, 32 Legare will forever be associated with...

Whether you are a native, a transplant or a visitor to the Holy City, the fact that Charleston is known for its shrimp and grits is basic information. Yet, those foodies who are in the know realize that often the only two ingredients prevalent in every restaurant's offerings are SHRIMP and GRITS. After that, local chefs often let their imagination run wild.

Folly Beach certainly has a personality of its own. Isn't that what we love about this beachside village? It's part funky. Part hip. Part quaint. Part artsy. All beach. And 100% fun. If you haven't visited lately, put it on your Must Do list! August through October is an especially good time to visit Folly. In the meantime, did you know...?

For my second diary post on the Heyward-Washington House, we'll be investigating 87 Church Street's connection to President George Washington and the building's history to present.

During President Washington's Southern Tour in 1791, the City of Charleston leased 87 Church for the President and his retinue (which was far less than the number required to travel with presidents now) for one week. That single week seared Washington's stamp on both Charleston and 87 Church Street.
