Historic Houses of Charleston



Edgewood was the city’s first planned suburb. At the turn of the 20th century, the Edgewood Development Company began selling lots in the West Side neighborhood by promoting the area’s natural beauty as well as its proximity to downtown. The Edgewood Historic District was added to the National Register in 1989.
