Commercial. ;Built in 1840 by James Fergerson, this building which is a commercial site today was once a fashionable home in the then Charleston suburb of Wraggsborough. The house is characterized by a Victorian false front which was probably added after the earthquake of 1886. The dwelling was a typical Charleston single house with a two-tiered piazza and numerable outbuildings which are still present. Although the front of the house has been thrown open as a commercial space, the ornate cornice and ceiling medallion can still be seen in one of the principle rooms.
