"Preservation ensures that Charleston maintains a balance between its role as one of America's most important architectural resources and a real, living city with a great quality of life for its residents."
Established in 1947, Historic Charleston Foundation is dedicated to preserving and protecting the architectural, historical and cultural character of Charleston and its Lowcountry environs, and to educating the public about Charlestons history and the benefits that are derived from preservation.
At this luncheon Ms. Robinson will introduce the beautiful new book "The Preservation of Charleston" written by local writers Harlan Greene and William Baldwin with photographs by N. Jane Iseley. The book is already the top seller at both HCF and Preservation Society Bookstores and copies will be available the luncheon for $75.00.
