One of only 2 buildings still standing with a direct connection to the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution! Built by King George and opened in 1770 as "The Royal Exchange and Customs House". It is said that you could stand at the front of the Exchange in 1770 (facing the harbor, and see up to 300 ships from eveywhere in Charleston for trade. And every ship had to send someone into the Exchange, go upstairs and pay theri customs. Then thy would come down to the main floor and announce to the crowd (...it was the busiest place in town) "I have a boatload of xxx, what am I bid?"
