I'm not sure what it is but we fell in love with this place.
The ladies in the gallery were so nice and very helpful. There were so many great pieces it was hard to decide but we finally settled on a fantastic watercolor. We should have also bought something that was Charleston scenery too!

Visitors to Charleston should not miss this gem in Chalmers Street in the old part of Charleston and opposite the equally unmissable Slave Mart Museum. Reputed to be the oldest house in Charleston it was originally a tavern. It is now an Art Shop and one of the artists, Alice Stewart Grimsley, was in attendance when, by chance, we visited the place. She is a charming Charlestonian lady. She told us the history of the place and made us feel very welcome. A major memory of unnforgettable city.

THE PINK HOUSE is the very distillation of old Charleston history! Along with the Old Powder Magazine, it's the oldest of Charleston structures still surviving after several fires, Civil War bombardment, the massive 1886 earthquake, and Hurricane Hugo in 1989! WOW - built to last since 1690 - that alone deserves huge appreciation! It is now a most charming art gallery, and the prices on the artworks will make it very easy for you to bring a meaningful Charleston remembrance home, so that you will always remember this brave, plucky, proud, and gracious historic city!

It is interesting that we found lots of Charleston history in some very small buildings. This establishment was also part of our pirates tour. The house has some very colorful history and now is a nice little art gallery with some excellent pieces.

We happened upon the pink house gallery while heading towards the slave museum. One of the artists was sitting inside, saw that we were lost and offered us directions. She said for us to stop back by and she would tell us about the oldest building in Charleston so we took her up on it. She told us about the gallery's history as a tavern and brothel and the ghosts that live in it now, she even had photographs! The artwork is classic Charleston scenes and is totally worth a look, but the history is what really hooked us.
