In 1663, King Charles II granted Carolina to eight English nobleman called lords proprietors. In 1669, the proprietors sent settlers to America. The settlers arrived in 1670 and set up South Carolina's first permanent white settlement at Albemarle Point in West Ashley. In 1680 the colonists moved to Oyster Point on the peninsula and named the settlement Charles Town. The spelling was changed to Charleston in 1783.

A CHARLESTON DOUBLE HoUSE PIAZZA. There is a possibility there will be no end to summer here when it should be autumn...There are many stories itching to be told over and over again about each sun-bleached house and its occupants and the great Yankee invasion of Charleston and how the gods have giVen the stories to me with dreams of eating rattlesnakes and yet I run from it to a new town as much as each month. Below the second floor piazza a gorgEous young boy in tan shorts and a basket that is perky and he wears red cap backwards over his black hair as he walks back and forth having a loud but serious conversation on his mobile, and I hear every word. The Young and the Beautiful are so easily appreciated when you are no longer that age...Upon entering Charleston I was excited as if CHARLESTON HAD BECOME Manhattan or San Francisco. Wish you all were here on the piazza with me in Charleston and we would play back gannon and sip wine and tell jokes and laugh...
