What I noticed about Charleston is that it seems to be 1 part Colonial, 1 Part Spanish and 1 Part Modern and all of those parts make for one incredibly beautiful city full of rich history. I LOVED how every street was lined in vintage gas lamps and I learned while there that the city MUST keep those lamps. Any place in Charleston over 75 years old MUST remain exactly the same on the outside as it was over 75 years ago. An expensive law that keeps this city the popular destination it is today!
This building which housed the halls where REAL people were sold is now a museum. I can barely let my mind wander to picture what it was like back then for the people inside these walls. The artifacts and diagrams on the wall depicts what life was like back in the 1700s-1800s and you really need to see it for yourself.
This building my friends is the OLDEST building in the United States, the first Powder magazine. This was built in 1713 and it is original. You know how it goes you need a building to hold all your explosives and magically this building never blew up.
I LOVE that Charleston really lets you immerse yourself into the past, you don't have to imagine what it was like... only step inside!
