“Beautiful !”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

Capitol Street , The old buildings, the beautiful tree lined street is like looking at a post card. This was like a walk down memory lane remembering the old stores and in what building they were in. It was good to be back home again !

“A Mixture of Old and New”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Capital Street used to be the place to shop until the Charleston Town Center was built in the 1980's. Now it is mostly small food establishments and business offices. The buildings have been revitalized and are well maintained.
