Powder Magazine Charleston 


Powder Magazine Charleston

The Powder Magazine in Charleston is the oldest public building in South Carolina. Built in 1713, the building was used as storage for gunpowder during colonial days and the American Revolution. The Powder Magazine is the only standing structure of the original fortification that once surrounded Charleston. The building is now a National Landmark with exhibits that focus on South Carolina’s colonial military history. The building is very small but exhibits are informative and well presented by a friendly and helpful staff. Visitors should allow about 30 minutes to tour the museum and visit the gift shop. Parking is available along the street or in one of the nearby parking decks for a fee. The parking decks are located on Cumberland St. and Queen St.
