Charleston Navy Base

Old Charleston Navy Base, North Charleston, S.C.

I met my son for brunch at Madra Rau the Irish Pub in North Charleston and took advantage of being in the area to walk through the old Navy Base housing. There are still amazing buildings there in various stages of repair. It's nice to see some of them have been repaired and used for the Army Wives series. Others are still waiting for some love and attention.

    1. Kate, Yes. Lovely to see some of them getting some attention. I watch Army Wives partly to see these buildings.

  3. Virginia is now in possession of Ft. Monroe in Hampton and fortunately it looks as if it will be saved, renovated and developed appropriately. I hope the same happens in Charleston.

  4. I remember this place well. I worked almost right across the street and would go there, go to the back, on the riverfront and eat my lunch, watching the occasional dolphin and more frequent container ship navigate the river.
