Charleston is one of the oldest cities in the U.S., and its history needs to be preserved. During your stay at Battery Carriage House Inn, take some time to visit local preservation foundations and societies to learn what the locals are doing to protect the charm of our beautiful city.
Preservation of Charleston’s historic buildings and quality of life is HCF's main function. This foundation runs several museums and shops in Charleston, and hosts frequent events throughout the year, including the Festival of Houses and Gardens every spring.
The Preservation Society of Charleston are the ones who started it all in preservation. They are dedicated to recognizing, protecting, and advocating for the Lowcountry’s historic places. Learn about the society’s preservation efforts and about their Fall Candlelight tours by visiting their site through the link above.
