Receiving Tomb in Magnolia Cemetery
In an effort to raise awareness and lay out the upcoming year's agenda, the Charleston Preservation Society has created a new 'Seven to Save' list.
Seven Lowcountry places and structures were decided upon by the society as especially noteworthy and in dire need of a little TLC. Included on the Seven to Save list are: Magnolia Cemetery's Receiving Tomb, civil rights-era sites, the Admiral's House at the former Charleston Naval Base, the single cottages at 193-199 Jackson St., Rose Lane Belgian Block Paving, and New Tabernacle Fourth Baptist Church King Street Off-Ramp Houses.
The Post and Courier has a interesting piece on the reasoning, the history, and the plan for each site. There's a photo gallery, too; check it out.
