Charleston City Directories

The South Carolina Historical Society has dozens of original Charleston City Directories published between the years 1875 and 1951. These volumes are incredible information resources and illuminate the lives of people living and working in Charleston over the course of two centuries. Scholars, students, and family historians all make great use of the City Directories, but without serious repair to damaged pages and binding, these volumes will no longer be available for use in the library by our visitors.

Estimated total:
$800 per City Directory
