Marine Barracks — North Charleston, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Charleston County  |  Marine Barracks

Below is the former Marine barracks on the old Charleston Navy Base in North Charleston. Known as M-17, the quarters dates to at least the 1930s and was likely built earlier. The Navy Base was established in 1901 and operated until 1996. Upon its closing, most of the buildings associated with the base fell into disrepair. In later years before the base closed, M-17 was used as offices. In 1995 it housed Defense Finance and Accounting Services, Cleveland Center. The future of the building is uncertain.

I was the armorer there from October 1974 to November 1977, worked in supply. Built the pistol range with Lt. Shipman, Placed 88 out of 288 Marines at the East Coast Rifle Pistol Team shoot. Great three years there.

On your second photo, in the lower right hand corner in the basement is where the Duty NCO were. This section was originally for the horses during the early 1900s (if not earlier).

I’ve been to this site several times, never knew this building was a barracks. Very interesting.
