Standing Up Since 1920

Building on our past successes, we have developed a plan to defend our city from the impacts of over-tourism, over-development, and flooding…to safeguard its soul. We have the experience. We have the tenacity. And we have the record of persistence and success.

Advocacy for Charleston

The Preservation Society of Charleston is dedicated to serving as a strong advocacy leader for citizens concerned about preserving Charleston’s distinctive character, quality of life, and diverse neighborhoods. One of the most important aspects of our work is participating in public meetings – where decisions are made that affect not only Charleston’s historic districts, but also how the built environment of the city at large takes shape and functions. PSC Advocacy Staff reviews every single project on every agenda, adding up to hundreds every year. We work directly with municipal staff, elected officials, project teams, and residents regarding planning and zoning decisions, best practice in the preservation and rehabilitation of historic buildings, and new construction to provide value-driven recommendations. Through these efforts, the PSC advocates for the best in historic preservation and thoughtful urbanism in Charleston.
