Thursday Event

Beginning this semester, the new and the old are coming together as Clemson’s architecture and historic preservation programs in Charleston and are united under one roof. The programs are located in a new space at the Cigar Factory on East Bay Street. The South Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, Trident Construction and McMillan Pazdan will sponsor the private ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. (It is not a public event, however media reps are invited to attend.) For related materials and information, email Bryce Donovan at donova4@clemson.edu.

Story Source

Conservators with Clemson University have been tasked with bringing back to life yet another gun from an historic warship. Scientists with the Warren Lasch Conservation Center recently received the century-old, six-inch, 30-caliber gun from the U.S. Navy battleship Maine, whose sinking in Havana Harbor was one of the triggers of the Spanish-American War.
