Saturday, April 18, marks Founder’s Day at Charleston Town Landing where 350 years ago, about 130 adventurous souls made their way from England via Barbados to the Carolina coast, ultimately settling at Charles Towne Landing. As you can imagine, the City, Historic Charleston Foundation and numerous organizations working to preserve Charleston’s rich history were planning great celebrations to honor this momentous occasion, plans for which understandably now have been shelved due to the pandemic. So, stay tuned, listen out on April 18 as church bells across the city will ring out in celebration, and we will come together when safe to do so to celebrate as a community.
