Serving as city hall, customs house, post office and prison- as the British Headquarters during the occupation of Charles Towne and then host to a great ball honoring George Washington, the Exchange has been an eyewitness to Americas history. This stoic building?designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975?has been described as the best example of the dignity and ornament of the traditional English ?exchange-town hall? design of the eighteenth century built in the United States. From within its Great Hall to deep below in the Provost Dungeon, the Exchange has played a vital role in American history.
