Charles Town

For this project, we consider Charles Town to include those portions of the Grand Modell which lie outside the boundaries of the old city walls, an area roughly bounded by East Bay on the east, Meeting St. on the west, Water St. on the south, and Cumberland St. on the north. For streets and buildings within those boundaries, see the Walled City section of this Guidebook. While the walls were removed in the mid-18th century, they left an imprint on the streetscape both within and beyond their boundaries.
