Marion Square

Downtown. Corner of Calhoun, King, and Meeting Streets.

“Will it be beneficial to all concerned,” asks the engraving on the fountain at the corner of King and Calhoun. What would Charleston be without the farmer’s markets, bikini-clad co-eds, Frisbees, and Movies in the Park that our central public space provides? Marion Square’s flip-flop from “Worst Eyesore” to “Best Public Space” is a win-win our city can take pride in.
