I just read a great little tidbit from Charleston Magazine about the former walls around Charleston and our very own “Walled City Task Force”, which was appointed by Mayor Riley in August 2005. According to it’s website, this organization is dedicated “to further the study, identification, protection, and interpretation of the Walled City of Charleston.”  VERY interesting…. The walls stood around the original city from the 1690s to the 1730s and today the offer a nice 1.5 mile walking loop.

You can download the “Walk the Walls Brochure” from the Historic Charleston Foundation Website.

Read more about it from Charleston Magazine.
