|Scope & Content||
Constructed ca. 1802; altered 1886; renovated 1994. The brick building at Archdale and Beaufain Streets with a curious stepped brick gable end, probably added after the earth quake of 1886, stands as a lone survivor of a continuous block on both sides of early 19th century masonry and wood dwellings and shops. Possibly constructed before 1802 by the goldsmith John Darby, the building contains interior woodwork dating from the mid-19th century and retains a storefront with a corner iron column, a feature associated with corner store buildings throughout Charleston in the mid-19th century. The city created the triangular spit of land on which the building stands by lengthening Market Street and demolishing several houses along these portions of Archdale and Beaufain Streets.
File contains newspaper article (DYKYC, 1978).
