Historic Houses of Charleston


Kanawha Boulevard

As Charleston grew, businessmen who made their money in salt, coal, timber, and other industries built stately homes along the Kanawha River. Many are part of the Downtown and the East End Historic Districts. Law firms, trade groups, and other organizations have converted a number of the houses into office space, but a few remain private residences.
