Object ID # BROAD.177.001
Title 177 Broad Street (Jones-Smith House)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed before 1870. Lucius M. Jones built this 2½ story Charleston double house on a large lot near the western end of Broad Street before 1870. His house reflects many of Charleston's antebellum architectural traditions yet pays homage to the prevailing Italianate style. A small pedimented portico shades the front doorway, which has a semicircular transom. A large-scale pediment projects from the roof with a central Venetian window. A double-tiered piazza faces out on the adjacent garden lot that remains with the property. Jones sold the house to his partner, William B. Smith, in 1874.

File contains HCF staff research notes; copies of deeds; "The Lucius M. Jones House, 177 Broad Street: A History" by Robert Stockton (2004); copy of photograph.
