Charleston, South Carolina - A visit to The American College of the Building Arts

  a fall open house that we attended. My father (a finish carpenter his entire career) and my mother drove from Ohio, and our daughter, Sarah, drove from Myrtle Beach to join us on our Charleston trip. Both the college visit and the downtown Charleston visit were great.

We arrived in downtown Charleston on Friday afternoon and checked into the Planter's Inn located next to the Historic City Market. Our room accommodations were outstanding! We later enjoyed an appetizer and drinks on the roof-top of the Market Pavilion Hotel and had dinner at the Peninsula Grill. After dinner we walked around the campus of the College of Charleston to enjoy the night-life.

Saturday morning we toured The American College of the Building Arts. My father particularly enjoyed the Timber Framing and Carpentry portion of the tour, while Daniella showed interest in the Plaster and Forged Architectural Ironwork sections. The rest of us just enjoyed touring the "haunted" jail-house that the college is housed in. The students are actually preserving and renovating the structure back to it's original state while using the skills they learn in the classroom.

The rest of our visit entailed a lot of walking, shopping, site-seeing and EATING! I could walk around the city all day and look at the historical homes and gardens in Charleston. They are truly breathtaking.

If you live in the York, South Carolina area and have never been to Charleston, SC, take a weekend and visit. You will return home architecturally inspired and about 10 lbs heavier!
