Charleston History Tour

Having lived in Charleston for many years I thought I knew most of the history of the city. On a recent trip downtown it was amazing the things in the history I did not know. Charleston had the first organized golf played in America and to know it was downtown at the corner of Pitt and Bull Street. Imagine a pasture now in that part of the city. According to history David Deas got 432 golf balls and ninety-six clubs from Scotland and that is how it began. The pineapple symbols that are found around the area started back in colonial times. It represented hospitality when seamen returned home they would stick a spear in the pineapple and put it outside their house to let everybody know they were back home. They could tell their friends about their adventures at sea.. These two history facts are just a few of the things that part of the city history..  If you would like to learn more about Charleston and particularly history facts take a tour downtown and for real estate information contact me Dixie Hagan at 843-729-9878
