Intern Nancy Norberg from Georgia State University organized and cataloged the completed surveys. Gardens were identified and surveys were then undertaken. Project volunteers included Ellen Clarke, Ellen Smith, Roseanne Wray, Jan MacDougal, Nancy Norberg, Susan Walker, and Glen Gar

90 East Bay Street (Ancrum Wharf Building) - Property File

Long thought to be a 19th century structure, 90 East Bay Street has been identified as one of the few 18th century wharf buildings surviving in Charleston. The large windows of the 2nd floor hide all evidence that this tall space was once 2 floors. Inspection of the roof framing suggests 18th century construction and comparison of the existing building to the elevation in a plat of 1793 suggests that the building currently standing at 90 East Bay is the building portrayed in the plat. Further inspection of the roof framing showed evidence of the removal of dormers. The property was granted in 1773 to Parker Quince and John Ancrum, both from North Carolina, who were married to Susannah and Ma

91 East Bay Street (Inglis Arch House) - Property File

Constructed ca. 1778, ca. 1782; restored 1938. This has been called the "Inglis Arch House" for many years because it is on the site of a pre-Revolutionary building leased by George Inglis and possessing an archway leading to an alley; the original dwelling burned in the fire of 1778. After the Revolution the mercantile firm of Leger and Greenwood rebuilt on the site. Leger and Greenwood are famous as importers of tea in the years immediately before the Revolution; it was their tea seized by Charleston citizens in the Charleston Tea Party in 1775. Briefly owned by Nathaniel Russell, the structure was sold to Frederick Kohne, who prospered at this site and willed the building to the Charle
