Provost Dungeon

A historic site recognizing another use of the term ‘provost’.

I spent the weekend in Charleston, SC for a retreat with provosts from several peer institutions. Just a few blocks away was a historic building, c.1771: The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon.

David visits the Provost Dungeon at The Old Exchange in Charleston, SC.

“Completed in 1771, the Old Exchange Building is a Charleston landmark and the site of some of the most important events in South Carolina history. Over the last two and a half centuries, the building has been a commercial exchange, custom house, post office, city hall, military headquarters, and museum.” – from their website.
