    »Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon

    The history of the Old Exchange Building is a complicated one. The Declaration of Independence was read from its balcony, and it was used by Washington to greet his people. However, it was also a notorious prison during the Revolution, and a major site in the slave trade. Today you can come see the site for yourself, explore its history, and make your own decisions as to its legacy. What can't be debated is its beautiful architecture, which makes it a true Charleston landmark.
