Signficant Architectural Features:
This is a house of great historical ties. It was built as the home of Thomas Bee, prominent in South Carolina as a state legislator, speaker of the house, delegate to the Continental Congresses, Lieutenent Governor, and U.S. District Judge. The house later became the Charleston home of Gov. Joseph Alston and his tragic wife, Theodora Burr Alston, who was lost at sea and never seen again. This was also the meeting place for the instigators of the Nullification Movement which split the nation and later culminated in the Civil War. The house is a typical Charleston single style with entrance off the street onto the first tier of a 2-tiered piazza.
