I call this #3 on the corner of "Four Corners of Law" It is a significant chapter of history for Charleston and a must see.

We were walking around Charleston and came across the Court House which invites visitors. We are certainly glad we decided to have a look as you can walk around enjoying the history of the city. The Court house is still used but has been maintained...More

An operational courthouse and museum wrapped into one. Free! Not that much to see though. No tour, no guide, a little video to watch but honestly not a big deal. Nice short historical visit.

The courthouse is next to a park we were in. We walked in to realize they have a black and white slide show on the main floor. History at it's best. Make sure to walk into the bathroom which is retro and immaculate.

While visiting Charleston, we were told to check out the County Courthouse. There were interesting paintings and beautiful rooms and a chance to get out of the humidity for a while! :)
