Significance: Charleston's City Hall is significant for many reasons. First, it is important for its original, graceful architectural design and its perfect execution of detail. It fits nobly into a highly distinguished group of early American public buildings. The United States Banks in Philadelphia, designed respectively by Samuel Blodgett and William Strickland, the Branch Banks, notably Bulfinch's work in Boston, William Jay's in Savannah, and Martin Thompson's in New York, make a splendid company. They were, and in their time so recognized, highly successful examples of architectural erudition, good design and scale suitable to the thriving cities of the new republic...
