Trolley Barn Tour

Come Join us for a tour of the new American College of Building Arts location, the Trolley Barn!
The Trolley Barn was constructed in 1897 and operated as a maintenance and storage facility for Charleston’s Trolley Cabs until the trolley system was abandoned by the City in the early 1950’s. It was then converted into a maintenance and storage facility for the City’s buss system until the new bus maintenance facility was constructed. It was not used for the last 40 years and  fell into disrepair. The American College of the Building Arts then purchased it from the City two years ago. It is being renovated now so that the College can combine all of the college programs into one location. The College is currently occupying the old City Jail on Magazine Street downtown and shop space on James Island. The shell construction is almost completed which is stabilizing and enclosing the building. The shop space for the Timber Framing, Iron (blacksmith) and Trowel Trades (masonry, stone carving and plaster) will be finished next. Then a three story addition within the building will be constructed for classrooms, offices and their library. The building is a Charleston Landmark building and approvals have been issued by the BAR and SHPO.

Contractor: HITT Contracting, Inc.
** This project is mid-construction, please wear closed toe shoes, hard hats, and safety vest.**
Those who are interested, there has been some interest in heading to Taco Boy for an informal “Dutch Treat” Happy Hour for some Post-Tour Networking.  Hope you can join us.
