11/25/07 125 W, 1 I - + 13 - 11 Charleston Historic and Former Firehouses

Though it took a couple weeks to complete, here's a tour of historic and former firehouses of Charleston. The research was conducted and all but one photo was taken during a recent visit. Ten engine houses and three watch towers are still standing. Many date from the mid- and early-19th Century. The page may get updated as other info surfaces. Additional CFD history is also available, and that page may also occasionally expand. Big thanks to historian and museum curator Grant Mishoe for ample assistance. The South Carolina Historical Society and the main branch of the Charleston County Public Library were also very helpful. Links to both are part of the above feature. Looking forward to my next visit.
