The story of Charleston is well told through its artisans. Bakers, candlemakers, and carpenters supplied the new colony with the craft and skills needed to sustain the new inhabitants. As the city grew and prospered, cabinet makers and silversmiths added luxury touches, while the German merchants of the late 19th century stocked King Street with clothing , leather products, and groceries. That story continues in the artisans and craftsmen of today’s Charleston. The Preservation Society proudly presents these modern “makers” – who continue the legacy of Charleston’s past today.
