Honoring all those who have served the United States of America in the armed forces… the beautiful flag display on Lockwood Boulevard.
Eye-catching beauty, from small to big, can be found all over Charleston. While this flower box and window may represent a smaller amount, the black disk on the wall indicates something larger. The Carolopolis Award, as represented by the disk, has been bestowed for over 63 years by the Preservation Society of Charleston on properties that have achieved excellence in historic preservation. Look around the city and you will find over 1400 of these symbols.
While relatively new by downtown Charleston standards, this 1908 house on Lamboll Street holds its own with some of its neighbors.
This antebellum house on Limehouse Street (c.1856) was built by William Shingler, and then sold shortly thereafter due to his wife dying and a weak cotton market (he was a cotton factor). But, since he apparently knew what he liked, within the next year he began to build a similar house across the street and married his former wife’s sister.
This picturesque little structure is tucked off Tradd Street, which is one of the few streets that runs completely from one side of the peninsula to the other.
