Charleston, South Carolina - Seaports, forts, and historic mansions define the past and support the economy of the present

Charleston, the South Carolina port city founded in 1670, is defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and pastel antebellum houses, particularly in the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts. The Battery promenade and Waterfront Park both overlook Charleston Harbor, while Fort Sumter, a federal stronghold where the first shots of the Civil War rang out, lies across the water. 

Founded and settled by English colonists in 1670, Charleston grew from a colonial seaport to a wealthy city by the mid-eighteenth century. Through the mid-nineteenth century, Charleston’s economy prospered due to its busy seaport and the cultivation of rice, cotton, and indigo. Today, major sources of capital came from Joint Base Charleston, the area’s medical industry, and the tourism industry.  Today approximately 4.51 million people visit Charleston annually, generating an estimated $3.22 billion.
