7:00pm at the Lake House

The first two hundred years in Charleston’s growth as the South’s major port city will be the subject of the first SINHG Evening Program of the autumn, presented by Katherine Pemberton of Historic Charleston Foundation at the Lake House on October 10th. Using period maps and illustrations, Ms. Pemberton will chart these dynamic two centuries that saw the city buffeted by two wars, natural disasters and social upheaval in “From Walled City to Reconstruction.”

Ms. Pemberton has served as Manager of Research and Education at Historic Charleston Foundation, and as co-chair the Mayor’s Walled City Task Force. She is an adjunct professor in the Clemson/College of Charleston graduate program in Historic Preservation. Her special area of interest is the fortifications of Charles Towne during its early history.

SINHG Evening Programs will continue in November with “The Lesser Known Charles- ton Tea Party” presented by historian and author John Young. All Seabrook Island residents and guests are welcome to attend. There is a $5 charge for non-SINHG members. Visit sinhg.org to pre-register or for more information about membership.
