Rainbow Row

Charleston, South Carolina Rainbow Row

Lining East Bay Street, this row of colorful historic houses is one of the most-photographed areas in the city. In the early 1900s, Charleston preservationist Dorothy Porcher Legge purchased and renovated a section of the then-dilapidated homes, painting them pink based on a Colonial Caribbean color scheme. Other homeowners followed suit, resulting in the range of pastel colors seen today.
