The Charleston Library Society, founded in 1748, is the third oldest subscription library in the United States (after only the Library Company of Philadelphia (founded 1731 by Benjamin Franklin) and the Redwood Library and Athenaeum of Newport, Rhode Island (1747). It has been at its current location at 164 King Street since 1914.
Despite the rather wintry feel to this photo, it was taken while the temperature was about 65 degrees!
This cannon was found under the house at the corner of Tradd and Greenhill Streets after it was last sold. It’s the real deal, as the owners had it authenticated. While I’m not sure how old it is, it must just have been stored there as the house was built in 1894. Charleston is full of interesting things no matter where you look!
Beauty can be found in all sorts of unexpected places in Charleston. Check out the reflection of one of the historic homes on Tradd Street in the in window behind this wonderful flower box.
