Answer: Charleston, South Carolina was named after King Charles II of England and was originally called Charles Town. Founded in 1670, it is the oldest city in all of South Carolina and is well-known for its unique historic architecture, and long beachside promenades. Charleston adopted its present day spelling with its incorporation as a city in 1783. Although Charleston is the oldest and largest city in South Carolina, it is not the state capital. That honor belongs to the city of Columbia. The capital city was named after the explorer, Christopher Columbus.
