The map Historic Charleston on a Map compiled and delineated by Alfred O. Halsey (May 1949), superimposed upon a City Engineers Map drawn by Jos. Needle (1946) is a great documentary resource of Charleston through its founding, development, and experiencing of natural disasters. The Preservation Society is using the map courtesy of The South Carolina Historical Society as a base map for this multi-layered preservation research project emphasizing the buildings, street patterns, and historic development on the peninsula. The project should exhibit layers of regional history, highlighting the evolution of architectural styles and character-defining features in Charleston with historic photographs, maps, and archival research.
