Stoll’s Alley: Corridor to History in Charleston

By Mark A. Leon

Today’s hidden Charleston treasure is a narrow corridor situated between East Bay and Church Street.? This narrow walkway donned with historic homes, statues, flowers and moss offers a romantic and historic view of Charleston.? As you walk through, pay close attention to the walls, entryways and driveways.? There are tiny gems throughout this one block walk.

Make sure you add this to your personal walking tour of Charleston.

Walk with me for a few moments as we document this quiet Saturday morning stroll down Stoll’s Alley.

Entrance way right off of East Bay Street

Horse knob by the front entrance of a residence

Lamp post against traditional brick

Old original external decor

Church Street entrance


Colonial designed home


Devil on the violin

That is a nice way to enter your home

The light shines bright

Love in Stoll’s Alley

We hope you can all enjoy your own stroll and make some wonderful memories from Stoll’s Alley.

Hint:? It is just before White Point Gardens if you are heading toward The Battery.
