Photographer's Note

Statues of saints in a small English garden at Charles Towne Landing.

Charles Towne Landing was the site of the first permanent European settlement in the Carolina province. Approximately 148 colonists, including men, women and children, landed at Albemarle Point the first Wednesday in April 1670 and established what would become the birthplace of the Carolinas colony, the plantation system of the American South, and one of the continentís first major port cities.
