This is an amazing sight where you see a stretch or a row of 13 colorful houses each having a different color of a rainbow and some even more colorful. The stretch is from the south to the North of the East bay street and these were all constructed between the 18th and 19th centuries. The color of the houses may have been different at that time but the designs were all same.

The place is registered under the list of National Historic landmarks as this is the longest cluster of houses in the whole of US. The specialty about these houses is that all of thee belong to once eminent people now sold off to others or lived in by the heirs. At that time it was also known as a river front cluster as it just over looked the Cooper River on the other side. At present the place has been filled with the increasing population and demand for accommodations so it is no more a river front place but it remains to be an interesting landmark for everyone new or old in the city.
