Walk Around Old ‘Main Street’

This is not something we can blame on a lock down, or any one thing at all.

There are some that have, more that do not. It’s becoming more obvious as time goes on.

Huguenot Church, Charleston

A small change of pace.

The first Huguenot Church, located at the site of the present church, was blown up by city authorities in an effort to stop a spreading fire. It was replaced by a simple brick church in 1800. This building was torn down in 1844 to make way for the present church, which was completed the following year. This third church sustained damage during the Civil War and the Charleston Earthquake of 1886, and was restored with funds from Huguenot descendant Charles Lanier of New York.
