The Early Days: A Photographic History of America’s First Museum

The Charleston Museum’s historic photo exhibit, The Early Days: A Photographic History of America’s First Museum, is on display November 13 – May 14 in the Lowcountry Image Gallery. After The Charleston Museum’s founding in 1773, it was subsequently overseen by the Charleston Library Society, the Literary and Philosophical Society of South Carolina, the Medical College of South Carolina, and the College of Charleston. Featuring images of the Museum’s time in Randolph Hall at the College of Charleston, the old Museum on Rutledge Avenue, as well as its present location on Meeting Street, The Early Days allows visitors to look back on the dedication and devotion given to America’s First Museum.
