intersting old colonial building . The library is upstairs , and court house below. There are two main squares in Charles town and this is the centre piece of one of them. You cannot miss it as Charlestown is very small.

This is a great chance to see historical downtown Charlestown little changed from the days of Lord Admiral Nelson. While it may seem small and crowded in the square outside, enjoy looking at the beautiful buildings and imaging how important this small set of administrative...More
