The graveyard at the Unitarian Church in Charleston. Beautiful in its more wild state than other graveyards in Charleston.
There is so much to see in downtown Charleston that even a peek down a driveway reveals the beauty of the City. This wonderful little driveway and house can be found on Church Street, between Broad and Tradd Streets.
Marion Square forms the heart of downtown Charleston. While it can trace its history back to housing fortifications during the Revolutionary War, it’s now used as a monument-filled park. It is the home of the Charleston Farmers Market, many festivals and other events, the Charleston Christmas Tree and menorah, and is a great place to sunbathe or just sit and watch Charlestonians and visitors alike. Previously known as “Citadel Green,” it was renamed to honor Francis Marion — the “Swamp Fox” who so badly hurt the British during the American Revolution.
A classic Charleston view along Broad Street. The evening sun always makes the street just glow.
Sweetgrass basket-making has a long history in Charleston, tracing its Gullah origins back hundreds of years to Africa. Originally made to help separate the rice seed from its chaff, they are now considered to be wonderful works of art and prized possessions.
Charleston is known as the “Holy City,” due to the large number of churches which were historically here and that when viewed from the harbor the city’s only structures sticking above the low rooftops were church steeples. This is the Citadel Square Baptist Church‘s — which is one of the tallest in Charleston.
These glorious window boxes and pretty cool shutters (and mailbox) can be found on King Street. So Charleston.
