Churches of Charleston

One of my favorite cities in all the world is Charleston, SC and any Historic Preservationist can easily tell why.  Charleston was the first city, town, municipality…really first anything ever to create a historic district, in the wee early years of the 20th century (1930’s).  The city is captivating mostly because of its architecture, charm, and people.  Mayor Riley has worked hard to restore and preserve.  We have had the great fortune to see our materials assist in many of the restorations in Charleston and it is always an amazing experience to be involved on projects with other experts in their trade.  The Churches of Charleston project was undertaken by a great photographer out of Charleston; Steven Hyatt.  The project has now evolved into the Churches of America as he travels to collect images, stories, and histories of each place.  He has so graciously shared his body of work with us that pertains to projects our plasters have completed.  They are stunning images of some stunning interiors.  If you’d like to see more of his work his website can be found here.
