Charleston was founded in 1670 as Charles Towne, and has an interesting past for early U.S. cities in that it has moved from its original location. From looking at a Charleston skyline picture, the quaint construction and lack of high-rise buildings would never suggest this was once the fifth-largest city in North America. However, Charleston's metro area is home to nearly 700,000 residents, and has been noted in recent years to once again be the fastest-growing region in South Carolina.

Charleston skyline pictures show a city with well-preserved architecture dating back to the American Revolution and Colonial era. As the oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston skyline panoramic pictures wonderfully showcase the construction the city is so well-known for. Many American Revolution monuments and points of interest draw tourism to the city, such as the Daughters of the Confederacy monument honoring the soldiers of Fort Sumter. This monument remembers the first incident of the Civil War. While the beautifully preserved works of the city's streets and houses can be gathered by looking at a Charleston skyline picture, the importance of the area in U.S. history is not always immediately obvious.
