Wandering through the city’s famous Historic District, you would swear it is a movie set. Dozens of church steeples punctuate the low skyline, and horse-drawn carriages pass centuries-old mansions and town houses, their stately salons offering a crystal-laden and parquet-floored version of Southern comfort. Outside, magnolia-filled gardens overflow with carefully tended heirloom plants. At first glance, the city may resemble a 19th-century etching come to life—but look closer and you’ll see that block after block of old structures have been restored. Happily, after three centuries of wars, epidemics, fires, and hurricanes, Charleston has prevailed and is now one of the South’s best-preserved cities.

Although it’s home to Fort Sumter, where the bloodiest war in the nation’s history began, Charleston is also famed for its elegant houses. These handsome mansions are showcases for the “Charleston style,” a distinctive look that is reminiscent of the West Indies, and for good reason. Before coming to the Carolinas in the late 17th century, many early British colonists first settled on Barbados and other Caribbean islands. In that warm and humid climate they built homes with high ceilings and rooms opening onto broad “piazzas” (porches) at each level to catch sea breezes. As a result, to quote the words of the Duc de La Rochefoucauld, who visited in 1796, “One does not boast in Charleston of having the most beautiful house, but the coolest.”

Preserved through the hard times that followed the Civil War and an array of natural disasters, many of Charleston’s earliest public and private buildings still stand. Thanks to a rigorous preservation movement and strict architectural guidelines, the city’s new structures blend in with the old. In many cases, recycling is the name of the game—antique handmade bricks literally lay the foundation for new homes. But although locals do dwell—on certain literal levels—in the past, the city is very much a town of today.
