69 Barre Street (Gov. Thomas Bennett House, a/k/a 1 Lucas Street) - Property File

Constructed ca. 1822, formerly 1 Lucas Street. This is the ambitious house of one of Charleston's wealthiest and most progressive antebellum residents. Thomas Bennett Jr. followed his father and namesake in the operation of the family's lumber and rice milling industries that surrounded this house. Although the vast mill pond with its floodgates and causeways, the lumber mill buildings, and the manager's house have disappeared, the Bennett residence survives as a testament to the family's prominence. Bennett served as governor of SC from 1820 to 1822 as well as various terms in the General Assembly, and continued to urge industrial and social progress for his native state. A curving marble st

18 Montagu Street (Benjamin Smith House) / 28½ Pitt Street - Property File

Constructed before 1788. Goose Creek planter Benjamin Smith, a delegate to the Constitutional Ratification Convention, built this suburban retreat soon after the Revolution. This structure housed some of the most distinguished residents of the village. Smith lived here and sold it in 1811 to Chancellor William Henry DeSaussure, the first director of the U.S. Mint and supervisor of the coining of the first American silver dollars. Although considerably altered on the exterior with double-tiered Greek Revival piazzas and double windows, the house retains much interior Georgian woodwork from the Smith period, particularly in the second-story drawing room. The hurricane of 1811 wreaked cons

61 Ashley Avenue (Richard Peyton House) - Property File

Constructed 1803-07. Richard Peyton, a merchant who kept an office at the Custom House, built this dwelling on a site purchased in 1803 from Thomas Corbett, a Harleston relative. Tradition holds that the house, set far from the street behind a paneled stucco wall and front wooden fence, was intended to be the dependency building for a larger residence which was never completed. Nonetheless, the quality of the existing structure, particularly the surviving Neoclassical woodwork, indicates the building was constructed as a principal residence. A stable and carriage house probably dating 1830-50 stands on the Beaufain Street side. Passing through a series of owners, the house belonged in the
