Learn about Charleston's magnificent ironwork while strolling through the lovely historic district. Much of the early ironwork was destroyed in raging fires and many noteworthy gates and fences were donated to the Confederate cause to be melted down for cannonballs and "skins" for ironclad boats. But, even with the losses, the city retains a wealth of impressive ironworks. Hear the story of Philip Simmons, Charleston's most famous ironworker, and of earlier blacksmiths who crafted beautiful gates throughout the city. Note: MORNING HISTORY WALKS AND TALKS ARE EXTERIOR ONLY and NO interiors are included. Meet at 147 King Street at 10:00 a.m. and wear comfortable walking shoes. This walkabout lasts approximately two hours.
