c. 1720

These lots as shown on the "Grand
Modell of Charles Town" were granted
in 1696 to Stephen Bull of Ashley Hall and
Sheklon. This house, one of the oldest on the
city, was built circa 1720 by his son, William
Bull, later Lt. Governor of South Carolina.
Subsequent owners added the piazzas to
the south and west wing and altered the
interiors, but the exterior remains virtually
unchanged. From these steps, Gov. Robert Y. Hayne
dissuaded a group of nullificationists from
proceeding to the battery where they intended
seize a ship and declare war on the Union.
