Travel Charleston, South Carolina was updated and designed by Katie Crawford-Lackey. It was launched in May 2018 by the NPS Cultural Resources Office of Interpretation and Education. Assistance was provided by Barbara Little, Megan Springate, Mia Carey, William Arey, and Jeff Joeckel.
Much of the content was drawn from the 1999 Historic Charleston's Religious and Community Buildings travel itinerary. That itinerary was produced by the National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Department of the Interior, in cooperation with the City of Charleston's Department of Planning and Urban Development, the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO), and the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NACP). It was created under the direction of Carol D. Shull, Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service, Patrick Andrus, Heritage Tourism Director, and Beth L. Savage, Publications Director. Historic Charleston's Religious and Community Buildings is based on information in the files of the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmark collections.
Charles Chase, Lissa K. D'Aquisto, and Debra L. Rhoad from the City of Charleston's Department of Planning and Urban Development conceptualized and compiled materials for the itinerary. Contextual essays were written by Charles Chase, Robert Stockton, and Shannon Bell (NCSHPO). Nathan Poe (NCSHPO) created the design for the travel itinerary. Shannon Bell coordinated project production for the National Register, edited descriptions and assisted with the design.
Special recognition goes to the Historic Charleston Foundation, Preservation Society of Charleston, Yvonne Fortenberry, Barbara Vaughn, and Kristina Hutchinson for their assistance with this project.
Thank you to all of the individuals, organizations and institutions who worked so diligently on this project, both in 1999 and 2018.
