Join us for the South Carolina Historical Society’s 164th Annual Meeting at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site! Tickets to this family-friendly event include admission to Charles Towne Landing, a business meeting, mimosa social, lunch, and keynote address by Charleston County Public Library’s Dr. Nic Butler. A special program for children ages six and up will also be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.*
Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site sits on a marshy point, located off the Ashley River, where a group of English settlers landed in 1670 and established what would become the birthplace of the Carolina colony. Visitors can learn about the earliest colonial history of Charleston through hands-on exhibits in the Visitor Center and by taking an audio tour on the self-guided history trail. They can also step aboard and tour the Adventure, Charleston’s only 17th-century replica sailing ship, see cannons fired, or take a peek at otters, bears, bison and more at the Animal Forest natural habitat zoo. The grounds also include 80 acres of gardens, with an elegant live oak alley and the Legare Waring House.
*Children’s tickets include admission to Charles Towne Landing and participation in a special program; children must bring their own lunch.
