A Picturesque View of Historic Homes in Charleston

By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

#Charleston #Colonial #4LoveLoyalty

Over the years I have taken a number of road trips to Charleston, SC for historical research on my novels. For Love or Loyalty required a lot of research on colonial Charles Towne and I couldn't help but take numerous photos while I was there. I am fascinated by historical homes and the various architecture. Therefore, I want to share a few of these images and I'll be posting them on my Pinterest boards for All Things Carolina and Inspiring Historical Places. Hope you enjoy them!
