Get hitched, ditched, taxed, and imprisoned all in one intersection!

The intersection of Meeting and Broad Streets was coined the “Four Corners of Law” by Robert Ripley in the 1930s. The four corner buildings represent God’s law; St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, state law; the Charleston County Courthouse, city law; Charleston City Hall, & federal law; the Federal Courthouse.

While the geography of the buildings seems convenient, the square actually evolved over the course of two centuries. Feeling like a history buff today? Click the link below to learn more!
