South Carolina Society Hall on Meeting Street is the weekly practice home for Cotillion (dance lessons) in Charleston. As today is the last day of Cotillion for the year (with the performance held at Hibernian Hall), it’s only fitting that we share the steps the kids go up every week on their way to practice. Society Hall is worth a visit for any reason!
These two houses, built in 1845, are the only survivors of seven identical houses that once stood in a row. Known as the “Seven Wages,” they were built by William Aiken as rental properties and the income generated by them was used to support the now named Aiken-Rhett House. Located on Wragg Square, the sibling houses were demolished to create space for a neighborhood school.
After seemingly weeks of gray, rainy and chilly weather, there is blue sky and sun in Charleston! This celebratory flag can be found flying on East Bay Street.
