About the event

Celebrated historian and author, Christina Butler, joins us for an illustrated lecture outlining her latest book, Charleston Horse Power: Equine Culture in the Palmetto City. Christina Butler will dive into her research of the history of working horses in the city. Looking at a variety of aspects, from the types of work they did (from racing to private and public transportation to delivery work), the animal care, carriages and material culture and the humans who worked with horses and mules, Butler can paint a picture of the architectural legacy of Charleston’s equine past.

The Food for Thought Luncheon Lecture Series is a favorite part of our annual spring programming. Each lecture is held in the Community Room of the Capt. James Missroon House, overlooking the High Battery at the Foundation's headquarters. Each Food for Thought program includes a light lunch provided by Caviar and Bananas and an opportunity for a short question and answer period after each intimate program. Space is limited and tickets are required.
