The Historic Charleston Foundation is no stranger to leveraging new technology to showcase Charleston’s vivid history: they have over 50k followers on Instagram! Last year, HCF began a new project with Museum Hack and Cuseum to design an app that further communicates the rich history and stories of this remarkable city.

In October, Historic Charleston Foundation took an exciting leap—we partnered with a consulting firm to develop our own app. The app will serve as a guide to our two museum houses as well as tell the larger preservation story of Charleston, South Carolina. The first of its kind in the city, our app will interweave audio (such as in-depth interviews with community experts and oral histories), text, and historic pictures to tell a more complete story of this complicated, beloved, and incredibly well-preserved American city.
