Phillip Simmons Gardens

Phillip Simmons Gardens

Philip Simmons (1912 - 2009) was a giant in the world of Lowcountry ironwork. Many of the remarkable iron gates in Charleston were made by Simmons, who is also remembered for his contributions to black history. He designed the fences and gates at this public garden on Anson Street, where the bell that hung (and rung!) in his workshop for more than 50 years is also on display.
