The fight to preserve seven historic Lowcountry sites

Receiving Tomb in Magnolia Cemetery

In an effort to raise awareness and lay out the upcoming year's agenda, the Charleston Preservation Society has created a new 'Seven to Save' list.

Seven Lowcountry places and structures were decided upon by the society as especially noteworthy and in dire need of a little TLC. Included on the Seven to Save list are: Magnolia Cemetery's Receiving Tomb, civil rights-era sites, the Admiral's House at the former Charleston Naval Base, the single cottages at 193-199 Jackson St., Rose Lane Belgian Block Paving, and New Tabernacle Fourth Baptist Church King Street Off-Ramp Houses.

The Post and Courier has a interesting piece on the reasoning, the history, and the plan for each site. There's a photo gallery, too; check it out
