Old Exchange Building and Provost Dungeon
Old Exchange Building and Provost Dungeon Review
Originally a customs house with a waterside entrance, this building was used by the British to house prisoners during the Revolutionary War, an ordeal detailed in a new exhibit. Costumed interpreters bring history to life on guided tours, and kids are both fascinated and scared by the period mannequins on display in the dungeon. But happier events also occurred here: the state ratified the Constitution in 1788, and Washington attended a ball in 1791 (remarking in a letter on the 400 grand ladies that attended).
