Market Hall – Cheraw, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Chesterfield County Photos | Market Hall
Cheraw’s Director of Tourism and Community Development, David Sides, tells us that Market Hall is “one of Cheraw’s most significant buildings. Built in 1837, this steepled building was designed by Conlaw Peter Lynch. Mr. Lynch was also responsible for the design of St.Peter’s Catholic Church, which explains the similarities of the two buildings. The lower portion of Market Hall was originally an open area where traditional commerce transactions took place, and on occasion personal property was auctioned here, including African slaves. The upstairs was once used as a court of law, and in the 1940s housed the town’s police department.”
Today the building is used for occasional meetings and for welcoming visitors and guests to the South Carolina Jazz Festival, held in Cheraw the third week of October.
