Field Trips

The South Carolina Historical Society offers self-guided and historian-led tours appropriate for all ages and grade levels. Students will engage with history spanning all aspects of South Carolina’s past, from the flora and fauna that attracted Native Americans and European Settlers to the Southeast, to the action of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, the rich Gullah-Geechee culture that thrives throughout the state, and more, all while roaming the castle-like passages of Downtown Charleston’s historic Fireproof Building.
