Preservation Society Supports American College of the Building Arts Efforts for Trolley Barn

CHARLESTON, SC –The Preservation Society of Charleston, at its annual meeting, announced its support of the American College of the Building Arts’ efforts to restore and use the Trolley Barn on Meeting Street for the College’s educational purposes. 

The Trolley Barn is included on the Society’s annual “Seven To Save” list of buildings of architectural and historical significance that are worthy of rehabilitation.  Built in 1897, it housed the electric streetcars that served as public transportation at the turn of the century.  The building, located on upper Meeting Street, has solid brick walls and features a glass and steel monitor that ruins the length of its gabled roof. 

“Having the trolley barn listed on the ‘Seven To Save’ list greatly increases the awareness of our efforts to restore and re-use this important piece of industrial architecture,” said LTG (R) Colby Broadwater, III, President of the College. “We are very appreciative of the Preservation Society’s support.” 

ACBA intends to redevelop the entire site to house trade workshops and faculty offices plus create a preservation center of excellence which partner groups and local artisans may utilize. 

The American College of the Building Arts is the only four-year liberal arts college in America educating and training artisans in the traditional building arts to foster exceptional craftsmanship.  

ACBA is a recipient of the 2012 “Heroes of the New South” award from Southern Living Magazine in the category of Architecture for advancing traditional southern craftsmanship with a modern spirit.
