History

Established and occupied by English settlers in 1670, the town of Charleston developed from a colonial seaport to an affluent metropolis by the mid 18th century. All through the mid 19th century, the economy of Charleston flourished because of its cultivation of indigo, rice and cotton and bustling seaport.

Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, occupied by the Union, was fired upon by Confederate soldiers in April 1861, thereby signaling the start of the Civil War. The town was slow to regain from the destruction of the war, but its speed from recovering became the basis of Charleston’s best asset – its extensive list of historically important architecture. After the war, the town was short on capital and was forced to fix its damaged structures rather than replacing them.

Charleston slowly decreased its reliance on agriculture after the war and restored its economy through industry and trade. In 1904, the Navy Yard (just north of Charleston’s borders) was constructed and pushed the town dynamically into the 20th century. During the first couple of decades of the 1900s, port and industrial activities significantly grew. Later, primary sources of funds came from its tourism and medical industry, the Charleston Naval Base.
