[image-1]The city of Charleston is old. With age comes history, and if you’ve ever stumbled into a tour group meandering downtown, you know there’s a lot to be told about our area’s buildings and streets and famous past inhabitants. It’s a lot to digest.

That’s why Charleston County Public Library archivist and historian Dr. Nic Butler wants to let you in on a little secret: the 10 things everyone should know about Lowcountry history.

Thurs. Oct. 5 at 1 p.m., head to this free lecture at the Daniel Island Library and walk away with a foundation that will serve you for years to come.

In addition to his role at CCPL, Butler is a frequent lecturer, an adjunct faculty member for College of Charleston, and a historical consultant for the City of Charleston. Learn more about Butler, and about the history he revels in, at charlestontimemachine.org. [content-1]
