Most of the buildings here were constructed between 1895-1925, and styles range from Greek Revival and Queen Anne to Colonial, Georgian and Italianate. Bounded by Bradford and Quarrier Streets, East Avenue and Kanawha Blvd, the East End is an excellent neighborhood for a leisurely afternoon stroll. « less

There's Taste of India (which features an excellent lunch buffet for around $10), Bluegrass Kitchen (features a variety of homemade fresh cuisine - although they often run out of menu items), Tricky Fish (urban "beach bar"), and more. There's even a record shop that has actual phonograph records. There are new attractions coming to this area all the time.

Some have been lovingly restored, and some are rundown. Thankfully, some are in the process of becoming what they once were. I'm sure they are fantastic to look at inside. We took... More

Drove the district. Found many homes in the district were beautiful but some were not so well kept. I suspect flooding has taken a toll on some of the older buildings over the years. Worth the drive but really didn't find the wow factor I have found in other historic districts.

Charleston's historical district is like no other...beautiful tree lined streets with gorgeous, well maintained older brick homes in Victorian and Craftsman styles. I especially loved how the historic district is right off the downtown area of the city...very convenient!

The East End Historical District is a great place for an evening stroll. I love the older homes and wonder about the families who have occupied them over the years.
