Four Corners of Law

It is said that “Four Corners of Law” received its name from the cartoonist and adventurer Robert Ripley, famous for his early TV series Ripley’s Believe It or Not. When the history of each of these corners is revealed, there is no wonder he was so taken by the history and intrigue of this intersection.

Perhaps nowhere else in America do the names of George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Irish architect James Hoban(designer of the White House) and former United States Senator and Presidential candidate Ernest F. Hollings combine to tell a unique history of Charleston.

From a meat market to City Hall, from a small framed house of worship to the oldest church building in the city, from police headquarters to a federal courthouse, and from provincial capital to state courthouse, this one centerpiece has evolved throughout the 300 years of Charleston’s reign as the “Holy City.”

Join your tour guide for a one hour stroll through the main streets of the city to the Four Corners, and indulge yourself in tales of political corruption, unsolved mysteries and crimes and, salvation…in a city unlike any other.
