Overview

In 1670, the Carolina Colony crowned Charles' Town the capital city, and since then Charleston has enjoyed a colorful and turbulent history. Trade made this bustling seaport prosperous, and by the mid-eighteenth century, Charleston was the 4th largest city in the American Colonies. Though Charleston endured devastation in the Revolutionary and Civil wars, fires, hurricanes, and even earthquakes, it remains one of the most beautiful cities in the South. In this new Then and Now book, archival photographs are matched with modern images of Charleston. See historical monuments like Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie, elegant St. Michael's Episcopal Church, and genteel colonial mansions as they once were-and as they are today. Though much has changed, Charleston's beauty is eternal.

    outstanding book

    This is an excellent guide to Charleston. Not only does the author deal with architecture but he also brings light to those who built and lived in Charleston over the centuries. This is an excellent guide to the explorer of Charleston's past.
