Charleston Has a History of “Firsts”

“Charleston claims an astounding number of “firsts,” including the first public library, first opera performed, first fire insurance company, first building constructed solely as a theater, first systematic and scientific recording of weather information, first public museum, first cotton mill, first fireproof building, first Reform Jewish congregation, first regularly scheduled passenger rail service, first municipal college (The College of Charleston, now a state university with the same name), first commercial tea farm, and much more. “
