Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1810; renovated ca. 1920s, 1950s, 1992. This traditional single house has a large extension to the north and east. Dr. Joseph Johnson, intendant (mayor) of Charleston and president of the Medical Society of South Carolina, lived here shortly after the building's construction and later lived at 35 Church Street.
