Lower King Street (below Broad) is full of antebellum and colonial houses. Just one more wonderful walk in a city full of lovely streets.
The Confederate Home and College was established in 1867 to support widows and orphans created during the Civil War (or as they may have referred to it, the War Between the States). The building (circa 1800) which fronts on Broad Street, also provides access in the back via Chalmers Street (seen here). It can now be rented for various special events, one of which can be seen being set up here.
Every second Sunday of the month, King Street in Charleston is shut down to traffic and becomes an amazing pedestrian mall — shopping, food, music and more.
This looks like a pretty nice thing to be doing on Mother’s Day in Charleston. This photo was taken by the corner of Rutledge and Murray Boulevard…in front of the house with the guardian stone pigs.
