This Building Erected in 1817
for a branch of the
Second Bank of the United States
was acquired in 1835, and has been
occupied continuously since that
date by the Bank of Charleston

The South Carolina National Bank

and one of the very few banks
in the south to redeem its currency
issued prior to that war.
