Photos: Inside the College of Charleston's cistern

Image by Flickr user Jason Permenter Image by 20090608-cistern.jpg This grassy mound is what most of us know to be the cistern, but much more lies beneath.

The large, grassy circle that most of us know as the College of Charleston's cistern is only the top fragment of a much larger water reservoir.

That structure was recently inspected, resulting in a few photos offering glimpses of the interior.

You can take a look at those images over at The Post and Courier, which also has a write-up about the structure's history.
