Post Office Park -- The Charleston Club, built in 1853-54, a two story brick building with Corinthian columns and pediment, designed by Barbot & Seyle. The building was sold to the U.S. Government in 1869 for use as a Federal Court House, which it was until 1884. After the 1886 earthquake, in which it suffered heavy damage, the building was demolished. During the building of the present Post Office and Federal Court House, this area was used for storing building stones. The park was created in 1904. A wooden annex to the Post Office was built on part of it in the 1940s. The park was restored in 1964.
Charleston Club House was located on the west side of Meeting Street, in the city of Charleston, measuring and continuing in front, on Meeting Street, fifty-eight feet, more or less, by about two hundred and thirty-six feet in depth, more or less; bounding, north, on lands formerly of Wm. P. Greeland; to the east, on Meeting Street; to the south, on lands formerly of M. C. Mordecai; and to the west, on lands of the French Protestant Church.
