Charleston enjoys a rich history dating back to the 1600s. Shortly following the restoration of Charles II of England to the British throne, King Charles granted a group of eight loyalists, known as the Lords Proprietor, a chartered territory in Carolina in 1663. Seven years later, the "Charlestowne" colony was settled along the banks of the Ashley River, just 6 miles northwest of the present city of Charleston. Sited as a prime port, the settlement soon became a bustling port town despite continued attacks from the French and Spanish. Today, many of the city’s finest historic homes and sites can still be toured and enjoyed including the Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, Aiken-Rhett House, H.L. Hunley Confederate Submarine and famed Civil War site Fort Sumter.
