The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon is a National Historic Landmark. Completed in 1771 in the Georgian-Palladian style, the exchange has seen some history. In 1788, the U.S. Constitution was debated and ratified here by the state. In 1791, city leaders entertained President George Washington here while on his southern tour. The bottom floor was a military prison known as the Provost or “dungeon.”, and public slave auctions were held. There is a fee to enter which includes a guided tour of the dungeon and self guided exhibits on the upper floors. Consider a combination ticket with the Old Slave Mart Museum which offers a discount to both sites.
