Old Citadel Review

A fortresslike building on Marion Square became the first home of the Military College of South Carolina, now called The Citadel, in the 1840s. Today it is part of an Embassy Suites hotel, and you can stop into the lobby to see a case of artifacts found on-site. The present-day Citadel is near Hampton Park on the Ashley River.
