Four Corners of Law
After beginning again on the Charleston Peninsula, the settlers drew up a city plan—the Grand Modell. At the center of it was a civic square at the intersection of Meeting and Broad streets. Later this would become known as the Four Corners of Law, as municipal, county, federal and God’s law are all represented by buildings here, the last by St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. George Washington attended services at the church on his visit to Charleston in 1791 and it is one of many historic houses of worship that explain Charleston’s nickname, the Holy City.
