Siege lines and fortifications, gentlemen planters’ urban retreats, an enclave for immigrants and free persons of color prior to the Civil War; and civil rights sites are just a few interesting components of the East Side of Charleston’s hidden history. First laid out in the colonial era, Hampstead has a rich architectural story as well.
