A Private Residence

— c. 1751 —

Outstanding Georgian House designated "of National Importance," was built by William Branford, planter and member of the Colonial Assembly. It is famous for its carved cypress paneling and drawing room which has been called "one of the most distinguished 18th century rooms in America."

Piazzas added c.1826 by Branford's grandson, Elias Horry, twice mayor of Charleston, President of the College of Charleston and President (1831-1834) of the South Carolina Railroad when it was the longest in the world.
