Charleston, SC – 1960’s – 1980’s – Photo Gallery (Remember the Times)

The 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s were a tremendous time of change in the United States.  It was a time defined by equality, civil rights, reaching for the stars, global turmoil, liberalism and conservatism, musical exploration and religious freedom.  It was a time when voices were heard and change was in the air.  Here in Charleston, we maintained a family friendly coastal home.  For many, it was our time of childhood when innocence, hopes and dreams engulfed our lives.  Summers on the beach and rich history on the peninsula was the life we knew.

It was a wonderful time to be in Charleston, SC.  We found some great images captured during this period of our Charleston home.

Take a step back with us.  If you were raised during this time, enjoy these moments of reflection.  If you were not, this is an opportunity to learn more about the evolution of this beautiful area.
