Court House Square is the land that the Charleston County Court House sits on in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, USA at the intersection of Meeting and Broad Streets. It is historically known as "the four corners of law" due to the fact that the intersection hosted buildings from each level of government: the courthouse (state law), City Hall (munipical law), the Federal Building and U.S. Post Office (federal law), and Saint Michael's Episcopal Church (canon law). The courthouse itself is still in use, located in the historic district near the park at Washington Square. It was the South Carolina Provincial House when South Carolina was under British Rule.
