LOW COUNTRY EXPLORERS MARCH TRIP
Join the Lowcountry Explorers on March 13 for a walking tour that will explore Charleston’s magnificent ironworks while strolling through the lovely historic downtown district. Many early ironworks were 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 the ironclad boats. But, even with the losses, the city retains a wealth of impressive ironworks. Hear the story of the late Philip Simmons, Charleston’s most famous ironworker, and of earlier blacksmiths who crafted beautiful pieces of art throughout the city. Lunch at Henry’s Restaurant. $46 per person. RSVP by March 1. To register, visit www.dicommunity.org.
