As a student of historic architecture and Charleston in particular, I am constantly referring to this book. Hundreds of houses in the city are given a brief history and architectural description. It is an invaluable resource for tourists, researchers, students, and anyone interested in the architecture of historic Charleston. Bring the book along with you when touring and you will learn so much about this great city.
