Old Slave Mart Museum

Possibly the only known building used as a slave auction gallery in SC still in existence, the Old Slave Mart was once part of a complex of buildings known as Ryan's Mart. The complex had a brick wall enclosed yard, a four-story building that contained a "barracoon" or slave jail, a kitchen and a dead house or morgue. Slave auctions ended here in Nov. 1863. The museum recounts the story of Charleston's role in the inter-state slave trade, focusing on the history of the building and site and the slave sales that took place here.
