|Scope & Content||
Constructed ca. 1847. Built by James McBeth, a Civil War period intendant mayor, before 1847, not far from the creek for which Water Street is named. This tall wooden single house is elevated on a high brick foundation, which protects the principal rooms from rising tides and catches sea breezes. The garage, a luxury in Charleston, is tucked underneath the drawing room.
