About Preservation Society of Charleston
The Preservation Society of Charleston (PSC) is the oldest community-based preservation organization in
the country and has a long track record of advocating for the people who live and work here. For nearly
100 years, the PSC has been at the forefront of protecting Charleston’s unique character. As our city faces a
triple threat from flooding, over-development, and over-tourism, the PSC has a comprehensive plan to stand
up for Charleston. Our work encompasses saving individual buildings (the threatened Archer School last
summer); forming coalitions, such as Fix Flooding First, to deal with broad issues; and playing a leading role
in generating important municipal ordinances, including the recently-passed Hotel Ordinance that protects
the peninsula from further excessive hotel development.
