|Object Type||Property File|
|Scope & Content||
Constructed circa 1835. Sole survivor of 3 identical Greek Revival brick single-houses whose sisters were demolished about 1940 for construction of a Piggly Wiggly grocery store, this 2½ story house on a raised basement was built as rental property by the prominent antebellum merchant Mordecai Cohen.
Three files contain original legal documentation of the easement on the property; annual inspection report; building history from Information for Guides of Historic Charleston; Cultural Resource Assessment for 97 Broad Street including architectural drawings; structural shoring notes and drawings; "A Brief History of 97 Broad Street" Meadors Construction; graduate student report "Historic Preservation and Sustainability in Charleston: A Case Study of meadors' 93 and 97 Broad Street Projects" (Jennifer Betwsorth, 2010) (see Multimedia link).
See also KSR correspondence files under 93 Broad Street. These files are unprocessed; some pertain to 97 Broad Street.
This is a new easement property so files will become more complete in time. The files may eventually contain additional items such as correspondence and other documentation related to the easement; Part I certification (National Register); annual inspection reports, requests for alterations, and correspondence related to the management of the property; easement inspection photos; correspondence and other documentation related to the sale of the property.
See Easement Documentation Photo Files for easement donation photographs (Exh. B to Deed of Conservation Easement) and Covenant/Easement Inspection Photo Files for inspection photography.
