The Oldest Museum

Cannon Park Ruins, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved

All that remains of Charleston's original city museum 
(founded in 1773) are its columns and brick steps after
a fire laid it in ruins during the late 1800's. 

Considered the nation's oldest museum,
it's contents were later moved to a new museum
on Meeting Street.
