|The Pink House|
Founded in 1670, Charleston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. One of the oldest homes in Charleston is built from Bermudian limestone and would fit right in on a tropical island. The Pink House, originally a tavern, was built shortly after the city's founding. Through its long history, The Pink House has been many things, including a law firm and an art gallery (when I visited), but it is in the process of being restored as a private residence. The 1,017sq-ft structure sold in 2017 for $620,000.

A brighter remnant of the past is Charleston's famous Rainbow Row. On what was once a waterfront street, a line of colorful Colonial era homes create a postcard perfect scene. The area deteriorated severely in the wake of the Civil War, but restoration efforts began in the 1920s and have made Rainbow Row a widely recognized Charleston landmark.
