A Beautiful Pearl

By Cathy Ledbetter
 
I have probably mentioned that I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is among the oldest cities in the nation and also among the best preserved. “Charleston Proper,” as it is called, is filled with structures dating from the early 1700s. A visit to Charleston is like a lesson in architecture— a person can stroll the streets and see buildings of Colonial, Georgian, Federal, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Victorian, and Art Deco styles. Growing up in this environment instilled in me a deep appreciation of architecture of all eras and styles.
