Ditch the old-school maps, pamphlets, and textbooks. There’s a new way to get your history on the go.

The Preservation Society of Charleston has launched an interactive Historic Marker Map. To find a building’s history, all you have to do is search by property name, street address, or keywords to unlock a new tidbit of Holy City history.

There are ~150 markers and counting. Each marker offers quick facts, photographs, stories, research, and archival resources to explore. If you can’t find what you’re looking for or want to suggest where a marker should be added, you can share your ideas for new marker locations by filling out an application.

May is Preservation Month, so it’s the perfect time to check out the new map. Pro tip: This could be a fun free way to explore the city and learn something new while you’re at it.
