James Simmons House

— circa 1760 —

Charlestonian James Simmons is believed to have built this Georgian style house circa 1760. It is located on Lot 278 of the "Grand Model of Charles Town", the earliest plan of the city. Otis Mills, the original owner of the Mills House bought the property in 1846. At the time of Mills' purchase, the Meeting Street facade had been altered with the addition of two projecting bays.

The house served as "Executive Headquarters" and home to Confederate General Pierre T.G. Beauregard. He led the capture of Ft. Sumter in 1861 and organized the defense of the city against Union forces and the attack on the Federal blockade fleet.
