We sought out this new eatery to have a catch up over lunch. A table for six was booked for a Friday at noon. Nice choice menu for starters and main courses at reasonable prices and interesting selection of wines. We all ate well washed down with some fine wine. The only issue the whole place was freezing I kept... 更多
Went on a ghost tour and learned all about why sand is in the roof, what all it has been used for through the years and the local things around it Went on Ashleys Ghost Tour I loved this stop and the House beside it was gorgeous with the sweetest quaint entry
The tour guides were most wonderful, fun and displayed a wealth of knowledge of the history of the Powder Magazine, Revolutionary War, Civil War and the local history of Charleston. A truly wonderful experience.
It is the oldest building in charleston- worth stopping just to experience that! Extremely well done small museum- takes about 20 minutes to go through. Pre-revolutionary storage of gun powder.

Nice little place -- definitely worth the price of admission. College of Charleston students working on restoring the place and doing a great job. Don't be concerned with the construction going on (Sep 2016) just go in and learn a little.
This is quite an interesting building consdering it was built beside residences orifinally. It still maintains an important feature covered in most history tours of the city.
