Lowcountry Explorers – Enduring Traditions, Ironwork of the Holy City

March 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Learn about Charleston’s magnificent ironwork while strolling through the lovely historic district. Many early ironworks were destroyed in raging fires and many noteworthy gates and fences were donated to the Confederate cause to be melted down for cannonballs and “skins” for the ironclad boats.

But, even with the losses, the city retains wealth of impressive ironwork’s. Hear the story of Philip Simmons, Charleston’s most famous ironworker, and of earlier blacksmiths who crafted beautiful pieces of art throughout the city.

This tour will be followed by lunch at Henry’s Restaurant – 54 North Market Street in downtown Charleston. Lunch is included in the price of the tour.

For a carpool option to the tour, please email John Edwards at
