SC’s Secession Convention @ Institute Hall

Over the weekend, I shared photos of some historical markers in Charleston that indicated the location of the building where the state’s postwar constitutional convention met. Ironically, the site of the state’s secession convention was just a block and a half north on Meeting Street, just past the intersection with Queen Street.

The two-sided sign stands along the sidewalk on the east side of the street. Next to it, a plaque mounted on the side of a building also commemorates the site.
