94 Church Street

— circa 1730 —

Thomas Bee, a leader in the
colonial government and
a patriot of the Revolution,
built this fine house about
1730. A later owner was
Governor Joseph Alston
and his wife, Theodosia,
daughter of Aaron Burr.
She was mysteriously lost
at sea in 1812.
The Nullification Movement
that split the nation
started here in 1832.
John C. Calhoun, S.C. Governor
Robert Hayne, General James
Hamilton and other leaders
drafted the nullification
papers in the second floor
drawing room. The first
floor sitting room was the
location of the original
headquarters of Historic
Charleston Foundation.
