Object ID # AMERICA.054.001
Title 54 America Street
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Although not listed in the Historic Architecture Inventory of Charleston, the structure is more than 100 years old and retains many of its original architectural features. Construction date is a mystery because, although it was not on its present site before 1844 and is not documented there until 1853, the house has architectural features of a much earlier period. Stands on a lot that was originally part of a larger tract in the Village of Hampstead.

File contains newspaper article, 11/5/79, "America Street Houses Face Demolition."
