This beautiful Charleston gate on King Street is made from wrought iron — meaning that each piece was individually heated and then bent by hand (most often hammered over an anvil). Most of the decorative ironwork in Charleston was made this way, as opposed to cast iron where molten metal is poured into a mold, and each piece is identical.
Some of Charleston’s night creatures caught heading home as the early morning sun hits the rooftops. You can find them this time of year hanging out on the balcony of the beautiful pre-revolutionary house on the northeast corner of Meeting and Tradd Streets. And the good news is that you can hang out with them whenever you want, as the house is for sale for a cool $2.95 million.
This pretty lake and fountain are in Hampton Park, one of the largest public parks in Charleston.
This welcoming house on lower King Street sports a rounded front porch — which is less common to see in Charleston thank those incorporating right angles.
Charleston cares about its trees, so much so some of them get to grow into the road — like this one on Legare Street. Old is honored in Charleston!
