Market Hall was built in 1841 for the use of the commissioners of the market and was also used as a meeting hall. Since 1899 it has been home to the Confederate Museum. The hall was the commercial center of Charleston for many years and served as a recruiting station during the Civil War. A National Historic Landmark, and considered one of Charleston’s best examples of Greek Revival-style architecture, the building was meticulously restored to its former grandeur. The museum contains a reference library, and such exhibits as cannons, uniforms, swords, flags and other artifacts of the War Between the States. The lively open-air market under the museum features everything from produce to antiques, small shops and restaurants.
