The French Quarter

The name of this neighborhood recognizes the high concentration of French merchants in the area’s history.  It is bounded by the Cooper River on the east, Broad Street on the south, Meeting Street on the west and Market Street on the north. Featuring property that comprised much of the walled city dating back to 1704, the French Quarter is graced with theaters, historic churches and centuries-old graveyards. It is famous for its art galleries and is home to many historic buildings; it also has many restaurants and retail shops, as well as Charleston’s award-winning Waterfront Park. This neighborhood is home to many of Charleston’s firsts.   The Dock Street Theater on Church Street was the first building designed solely for theatrical performances in America and is still in operation today. Chalmers Street is the city’s longest cobbled road and The Pink House at 1700 Chalmers, built around 1690, is the oldest stone house in Charleston.

Insider Tip:
Established in 1680, St. Philips Church is the oldest Anglican congregation south of Virginia.  The graveyards next to and across the street from the church are filled with a rich history.
