History of Colcock Hall
Medical College of South Carolina
In the early 1960s, Porter Military Academy merged with the Gaud School and the Watt School and relocated to a new site on Albemarle Road west of the Ashley River. In 1963, the Medical College of South Carolina purchased the 11-acre site at a cost of $1,136,000.00. The Waring Historical Library, St. Luke’s Chapel (formerly St. Timothy’s Chapel) and Colcock Hall were retained by the Medical College and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
