Charles Towne Landing

  • charles-towne-landing-entrance

In 1670, the first English colonists landed on this spot, just across the Ashley River from downtown Charleston, and promptly named their new town for King Charles II. Charles Towne Landing’s exhibits expertly re-create what life was like for those early settlers: the fort they built, the wooden palisade wall they erected to keep out enemies, the crops they planted to feed their colony, and a full-size replica of a 17th-century cargo vessel, one they would have used to ferry supplies and provisions. There’s also an animal forest where you can see native species that the settlers would have encountered in their new home at South Carolina’s first colonial settlement.
