Welcoming Waterfront

One of the most commonly used photographs of historic Charleston is the row of houses along the High Battery. This group of grand residences has stood majestically through years of hurricanes and an entire Civil War, and is one of the places we pass each day on my walking tour. The line of 11 huge houses, collectively known as Battery Row, range in age from 1818 to 1920, and eight are pre-Civl War. They embody the elegance of Charleston as well as its larger-than-life architectural styles, and to stand on the sidewalk next to one of these buildings is an awesome experience.
