Lowndes Grove Plantation

ca. 1786
266 St. Margaret Street
Charleston, South Carolina

This two and a half story home occupies the site of an earlier dwelling built in the mid-18th century and burned by British troops in 1780. Named after past owner William Lowndes, who served as both a state representative and US congressman, the home was altered significantly during the 19th century. It began as a Georgian style home, but its unique facade now reflects Greek and Gothic revival styles as well. The house and grounds have been preserved and updated for use as an events venue.
