Standing tall in Charleston’s French Quarter is the Pink House, a vibrant landmark with a rich past. It is fairly small, only 1,007 square feet, and has been used as a private residence, art gallery, a law office and a Colonial-era tavern. Constructed from rosy Bermuda stone between 1694 and 1712, it’s a strong contender for the title of South Carolina’s oldest building. Though the exact date is debated, it remains Charleston’s second-oldest residence. . Today, this charming pink building has transformed into a local art gallery, where visitors can admire artistic creations alongside the Pink House’s own captivating story.
