Captain John Morrison House

— circa 1805 —

This Adam style Single House was constructed circa 1805 by Captain John W. Morrison on the site of the circa 1790 garden of Robert Squibb, who brought many exotic plants to Charleston, exported rare species from Charleston to England, and published the Gardener's Calendar in 1787.

The Morrison House is noted for its handsome four bay facade facing Tradd Street, and for its expansive three-tiered piazzas which were added in the 1840's. The house is also noted for its Adam style interiors and for the large scale of its primary rooms and entrance hall.
