Located on Broad Street in Camden, the Robert Mills Courthouse was completed in 1827. Today it is home to the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
Born in Charleston, Robert Mills (1781-1855) was the architect of the Washington Monument and designed courthouses for 18 counties in South Carolina , along with many other buildings, including the Fireproof Building in Charleston.
The historical marker picture below reads:
“On this corner stood the gaol (jail), built in 1771 and burned in 1812. During the Revolution the British imprisoned in it many American soldiers and civilians. Among them, after his capture near the Waxhaws, was the boy Andrew Jackson, later seventh President. He is said to have watched the Battle of Hobkirk Hill through a hole he cut in the wall of the gaol’s second story.”
