Everything in Charleston is old. Like pre-Civil War old. Some even pre-Declaration of Independence old.
A lot of the houses have some really awesome iron work!
This one has a really wicked looking fence out front
There are also a lot of churches in Charleston. It's also called The Holy City.
There was a big earthquake in Charleston in 1886 and after that people added earthquake bolts to their houses to keep the walls tight so they wouldn't fall. Some are real and have cables running through. Some are just "stick ups" in order to make their houses worth more.
There were also some cute old shop signs...
This was the building they stored all the gunpowder in. Probably not a good idea. But it's still there, so...
I wish I could remember all the cool stories about all the buildings and houses and streets we saw, but I can't.
So, this post was just be a whole bunch of pictures of the beautiful South Carolina town of Charleston. Hope you enjoyed it!
Oh, I almost forgot the picture of our fantastic horse! (we had a pretty great tour guide, too) ;)
