Title 93½ Columbus Street
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content The first building on the site was built before 1853 by Henry Jackson, a member of a prominent free African-American family on the East Side. This building was either replaced or extensively remodeled, probably by Joseph Whyte in the 1880s, and provided space4s for various stores and a butcher shop. The building experienced significant deterioration in the 1970s before condemnation and conveyance by the City to Historic Charleston Foundation, who completed some stabilization and conveyed it to Charleston Affordable Housing. The structure collapsed in the windstorm of March 1993 just prior to a planned rehabilitation.
