Charleston Green in the Historic French Quarter

Not every city has its own color. And you can bet your shrimp and grits there is a story behind Charleston’s hometown color. Charleston green.

As you walk around historic Charleston take note of the shutters and doors of the beautiful city. You might just notice while many of the buildings are bright and vibrant colors, many of the shades and doors are a dark green.

That’s called Charleston Green. And it has a history rooted in the south.
