54 Tradd Street (Postmaster Bacot House)
— circa 1740 —Constructed circa 1740 by William Vanderhorst, this three story stuccoed masonry structure is considered one of the earliest examples of Charleston single house. A notable aspect of the building is the absence of a piazza, a development found in single houses of a later period.
Distinguished residents of 54 Tradd Street include Mr. Thomas W. Bacot, Charleston's fifth post,and Abram Sasportas, one of Charleston's early leading merchants. The house was restored in the 1920s by Miss Susan Pringle Frost, founder of the Preservation Society of Charleston.
