Inscription.
Built in 1796 by
Daniel Ravenel,
the Second of
Wantoot Plantation,

as a summer home
replacing an earlier building
destroyed in the great fires of that year.
The property came to
his wife in 1749,
having been owned since 1710
by her grandfather
Isaac Mazyck,
the French
Huguenot Immigrant.

This land, with 10 generations of occupancy,
is one of the oldest properties
in this city, and perhaps
the nation, to remain continuously
in the same family.
