Travel to Legard St in the Historic section of Charleston and you will come upon the Sword Gate House. A closer look at the gate entrance and it is clear how the Sword Gate House got its name. The gate iron work is a stunning work of craftsmanship with the centerpiece broadswords that meet in the middle. The image here is a view of the broadsword of the right gate. There is a path through the gardens behind the gate. The sunlight was kind enough to provide sparkling highlights in the garden behind the gate.
