20 Queen StreetThe building at 20 Queen Street was built circa 1840 for use as a cotton warehouse. It is considered a notable example of vernacular warehouse architecture in Charleston, influenced by Roman Revival and West Indian architecture. In 1934, the building was purchased and rehabilitated by the Footlight Players, the state's oldest theatrical group, which was founded in 1931.
