Sports have historically been important to our personal well-being. In addition to the health benefits of physical activity, life values such as teamwork, discipline, and emotional self-control are frequently learned through recreational games. The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw the rise of a variety of sports across the country, and these inevitably found their way to Charleston.

Join us to view historic photographs from the Museum's Archives collection of sporting moments from the Lowcountry.
