Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston green is a classic paint color of the South. It is a rich shade with strong, black undertones. The use of the Charleston green color began in the years following the Civil War. Reportedly, the North sent black paint down to the South for reconstruction projects. Not content with plain black paint, Southerners decided to brighten up it up with the small addition of yellow and green pigments.
