Loutrel Briggs Gardens Survey (Historic American Landscape Survey) - Collection

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

167-169 East Bay Street (Roper-Melchers Building) - Property File

Constructed 1834-37; altered 1890s; rehabilitated 1985.

Originally constructed by the younger Roper as a 3-story double tenement, the building was reduced to 2 stories. Owned by the Medical Society for decades, the property was refaced with Italianate style double shop front, pedimented window hoods, and a pressed metal entablature for Melchers & Company, wholesale grocers and dealers in Carolina rice. After the building deteriorated with East Bay Street for most of the mid-20th century, the cornice was remo
