Signficant Architectural Features:
Built by Thomas Heyward, signer of the Declaration of Independence, this is a typical Charleston single house of Adam influence and is noted by its handsome brick facade with 2nd story window balconies and quoins. A distinguished street doorway with fanlight opens on the 1st tier of the 2 tiered veranda. The interior is equally noteworthy with its handsome mantels, cornices, and ceiling medallions of Adam design. The house contains a hidden room which was probably used for wine storage.
