Taken on a walk in town.
By my estimate the man never was home after the US Revolution ended. Every city has an old home that claims this.
Charleston was one of the first US cities so it must be true…and I read it on the internet.
Haywood House, Charleston, South Carolina.
Working with styles of monochrome around the old Boynton house.
Looking up close at the details that had made this a grand old house, out in a remote marshland.
Inside an old Charleston historical and grand house.
No rebuild or renovation here. Preserved as it was.
These magnificent homes are best when maintained the way they were planned. A visit is a step back in time.
At one time there was enormous wealth, there still is in the art work collected in the past.
Rose Hill Plantation located in Union County, South Carolina.
The home of William Henry Gist (August 22, 1807 – September 30, 1874) the 68th Governor of South Carolina from 1858 to 1860 and a leader of the secession movement in South Carolina. He was one of the signers of the Ordinance of Secession on December 20, 1860, which effectively launched the Confederacy and ultimately the US Civil War.
The plantation survived the Civil War because the rivers were flooded at the time the Union Army came through under General Sherman.
From an old grand house, that has seen better days, in Charleston, South Carolina.
The photographs above were processed with a Kodak 1600 ISO film filter which I have always thought compared to film nicely.
I believe the above was with an Ilford film filter but I failed to make a note of which ISO.
While out recently we came across another of the South Carolina Chapels Of Ease. This one being in St. Helena.
This Chapel has suffered the usual fate, burned in a fire on February 22, 1886. This was not burned in war though. A forest fire was the cause.
This building may be the most impressive chapel relic we have found.
Every town in South Carolina has multiple Churches, and many from hundreds of years ago.
We passed this one and made sure to stop on our way out of town.
Most are simple, and yet very impressive.
