My husband and I, along with two friends traveled to Charleston and spent a week at Annelise and Jack's beautiful home. Their B and B is located in the South of Broad area, with any number of fabulous restaurants located within a 10 to 15 min. stroll. We enjoyed a variety of choices for breakfast and each evening as wine and snacks were served, we shared adventures of the day with the other guests. Jack and Annelise had many great suggestions for what to see in the beautiful city. Special thanks to Amy and Martha for their suggestions and friendly smiles in making our stay at 15 Church St. one we will want to repeat!.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr., the property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Yates family constructed the present house in the early 1840’s and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for its Adam style paneling by Thomas Pinckney and ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons, his most recent addition (1998) being the basement gate at the front. The Earthquake of 1886 leveled the 4th story, which was rebuilt with a Mansard roof. Subsequent to this, the structure was reinforced with "earthquake rods", bolts running through the house between the exterior walls. Almost 100 years later, in bringing the structure up to code, this same technology was used with the addition of nine more bolts. ... more less
