After dropping Lon off at camp, I went to the Joseph Manigault House. It is owned and operated by the Charleston Museum. They call it Charleston's Huguenot House. Being owned and operated by the Charleston Museum means we can take non flash photography!
This is the back of the house.
The Gate Temple from the house
very balanced and symmetrical.
The Chandelier from above
It was a wonderful tour, I had a private tour. The tour guide has been with the house for more than 40 years.
Crown molding detail. What a lot of work went into this house!
Guess who also got to tour the house? They were touring the house as part of the architecture part of camp.
A little more information about the house. The yards were working yards.
Leaving the house.
I had some time before picking up Lon for lunch, so I went for a walk around the neighborhood.
JF Wragge Charleston SC 1891
This little park was tucked in on Elizabeth Street
This is the wall of a cemetery, I am not sure that you can see it but the wall is bowing out. This cemetery is connected to the Second Presbyterian Church. Which is right across the street from the Fourth Baptist Church.
A little ways down on Elizabeth Street. There is this house. I love the ghost sign they kept on the house.
The name was Gilroy's Pizza Pub. It billed itself as Charleston's oldest pizzeria. Est. 1974.
On the way back to the museum we passed a French Macaroon shop. Lon and I were looking forward to a macaroon. These were not what we were looking for. They were heavy, and mushy. When the humidity goes down, I will make some for Lon.
You were only allowed to take photographs outside.
Two cows lived in this building. It was small. There are no cows there now
On our way to the car, I let him stomp in puddles and dance in the rain. We were going to get soaked on the way to the parking lot, no matter what, so we enjoyed it.
Lon took pictures of the car out the back window of the car.
We made it home and it was not raining as hard here as it was downtown
It was a fun day, not as much walking, but a very good day!
