    Battery Park

    The park is located at the south end of town and is along the waterfront. There are several reminders of the civil war on display such as cannons and this statue. There is a gazebo as well located there. The walk from battery park to the main pier is very interesting as there are several old houses along the way. Also, this area has parking along the waterfront and so if you are having trouble finding a spot downtown, perhaps try down here.

    Old Town Charleston is a beautiful city. Battery Park, along side Charleston Bay, is the perfect place to relax, watch people, enjoy grand old houses, and watch the shipping traffic come in and out of Chareston.

    Take a walk through the Battery

    by kinielena Written Jan 19, 2004

    It is beautiful. You can tour several of thehouse or you can even stay at 2 meeting street inn which is a bed and breakfast in the heart of the area. Be sure to notice the stone steps in front of the houses. They were there in "the old times" to help ladies out of their carriages.

    The Battery

    If you are in Charleston, you MUST visit The Battery! The view is breathtaking! The walk is almost to describe -- you feel like you step back at least 100 years back! The houses (I should say mansions) are gorgeous!

    The Battery is what Charleston is famous for. It is located right on the harbor. The Battery consists of a group of old Southern style mansions. You can look out into the bay and see Fort Sumter, the place where the Civil War started.

    This city bandstand is hardly what the locals would consider to be historical. It is a mere century old, whereas the homes and mansions in this area are 2-3 centuries old. I found the city park where this structure was located, and also its size and appearance, very appealing to photograph. Note the kid in the picture for perspective. That is my 14 year old son (now 15) --- 6' 4'.

    The battery park and artillery guns are lined up along the coastal area. It is a nice view of Ft. Sumter and the open water harbor area.

    Monuments, cannons a gazebo, and lots of benches to sit & people watch. We walked along the waterfront, a bit too far to see Ft. Sumpter.

    this beautiful queen anne style mansion was built in 1892. george williams built this house as a wedding present for his daughter, who married waring p. carrington, a king street jeweler.
