Many Charleston buildings are well over two hundred years old, such as the Old Exchange, a masterpiece of Palladian architecture in which George Washington attended a grand ball in 1791, and whose dungeon once housed two signers of the Declaration of Independence. A number of old streets are still paved with cobblestones, which came to Charleston as ballast in colonial sailing ships. Entire blocks are devoted to aesthetic landscapes, such as White Point Gardens at the foot of the Battery, where cannons fired against pirates and during the Civil War. Today, the cannons are still there, but stand as silent monuments along promenades lined with oaks, azaleas and oleanders.
