Title 104 Bull Street (Bennett-Prioleau House)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1802. The noted builder-architect Thomas Bennett Sr. Constructed this raised 2½ story Neoclassical-style dwelling before March 1, 1802, when he sold it to Henry Izard, who conveyed it to Nicholas Harleston. Similar in its weatherboarding to 96 Bull Street, it also resembles 128 Bull Street and the now demolished 112 Bull Street in its front-facing form. The house passed to the attorney Samuel Prioleau in 1818 and remained that family's residence until 1850. A double-tiered front piazza was probably added in the mid-19th century. The Schirmer family owned the house through much of the 20th century and reduced the front piazzas to the present double-tiered portico while retaining much of the interior Neoclassical decoration.

File contains newspaper article (including DYKYC); architectural drawings submitted to and approved by the BAR (2007).
