Established in 1947, Historic Charleston Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to protect buildings, landscapes and cultural resources that make up Charleston's rich and irreplaceable heritage.
At the heart of the Foundation's mission lie its preservation and advocacy programs, including protective covenants and easements. This mission is supported through the generosity of preservation-minded donors, in addition to the Foundation's earned-income programs, including the Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens, the Charleston Antiques Show, licensed products program, and three retail shops. In addition, the Foundation fulfills its educational mission through the interpretation of its collections and two museum sites: the Nathaniel Russell House, c. 1808, and the Aiken-Rhett House, c. 1820.
