Founded in 1920, the mission of the Preservation Society of Charleston is to inspire the involvement of all who dwell in the Lowcountry to honor and respect our material and cultural heritage. Membership in the Preservation Society is open to everyone.

Charleston Heritage Symposium was established in 2012 by an all-volunteer board of decorative arts and cultural heritage enthusiasts.  Limited to 80 patrons, the Symposium offers a delightful weekend with outstanding scholars in this historic South Carolina seaport renowned for its landmark buildings, magnificent houses and gracious hospitality.
