38 Tradd Street (Bullock Building) - Property File

Constructed ca. 1718; restored early 20th century. Restoration work done on these properties in 1979 revealed that both structures, built by John Bullock or his widow between 1718 and 1722, escaped damage from the plague of fires that swept through early Charleston. No. 38 served as the artist Elizabeth O'Neill Verner's home and studio from 1938 until her death in 1979. This easternmost building retains much of its original character, including small imported red brick laid in a Flemish bond pattern and a steeply pitched gable roof. Evidence of alterations in fenestration are apparent in the front facade, but on the interior a large fireplace substantiates the dwelling's early character. In t

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

In 2003, landscape architect James Cothran contacted former HCF employee Susan Epstein about conducting a Historic American Landscapes Survey of Loutrel Briggs gardens in Charleston. Ms. Epstein coordinated the effort and enlisted the help of volunteers from HCF, SC Historical Society, Charleston Horticulture Society, and the Preservation Society, who documented and inventoried several Loutrel Briggs gardens. 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

125 Tradd Street (Capt. John Morrison House) - Property File

Constructed ca. 1807; restored 1930s. One of the most distinctive of Charleston's single houses, the Morrison dwelling's wide street frontage points to the exceptional depth of its stair hall and flanking rooms on each floor. John Morrison, a mariner, purchased the property from the estate of Isaac Mazyck in 1800 and built a large dwelling within five years. Following the Neoclassical or Federal style of architecture, the house retains its nine-over-nine white sash windows on the first two floors and smaller six-over-six third floor windows. A modillioned cornice and boxed soffit or fascia encircles the building including its triple-tiered, columned piazzas. With the death of Capt. Morrison,

126 Tradd Street (Dr. Peter Fayssoux House) - Property File

Constructed ca. 1732; restored 1965. Beginning as a 2-story house with an asymmetrical floor plan like those at 59 Church and 94 Broad, this early dwelling evolved through several periods of alteration. Surviving interior corner posts still visible in the front rooms have often been noted as the building's most unusual architectural feature and as an indication of its construction by a carpenter accustomed to 17th century English building techniques. In the antebellum period a double-tiered piazza was appended to the west elevation. Other alterations in the 19th and early-20th centuries include the construction of a brick ell on the rear of the house and the removal of the front street d
