Title 64 Meeting Street (Andrew Hasell House)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1789; altered ca. 1850; restored ca. 1930. The classic Federal style Charleston single house at 64 Meeting Street stands with only small alterations from the dwelling built by Andrew Hasell, a planter in St. James, Santee, and St. Thomas parishes. Hasell acquired the site upon his marriage to Mary Milner, daughter of the Congregationalist merchant Job Milner. After his wife's death the property descended to their daughters and was sold in 1818 to Alexander England. Some alterations were made on the interior in 1850; the piazzas were probably added at that juncture, and a new hyphen addition connected the main house with the original kitchen house. Albert Simons, an architect prominent figure in Charleston's preservation history, restored the house in the late 1920s for Thomas A. Huguenin and his wife Mary Vereen Huguenin, designing a Neoclassical style door screen on the piazza. Simons's firm also assisted the Huegenins in their restoration 2 decades later of the plantation house at Halidon Hill on the Cooper River. Ropemaker's Lane, formerly Rope Lane, probably named for an early ropewalk runs to the north of this house.
