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. Meet at 147 King St., 10 a.m. and wear comfortable walking shoes. The walk lasts approximately two hours. Note: NO private properties will be included.
