The Carolopolis Award is a plaque placed on buildings that have been preserved, restored, rehabilitated or are outstanding examples of new construction. The award is presented to those individuals, businesses or organizations that currently own the property. The Carolopolis Award is a slightly modified reproduction of the seal of the City of Charleston. The word Carolopolis comes from the original name of the city
Inscription. Outstanding example of Romantic Greek Revival style, adapted to Charleston climate. Outwardy of dignified classic proportions, interior is richly decorated in eclectic manner but on a livable scale. Standing on 5 lots from the original Robert Limehouse Farmlands, the house originally fronted on seawall to south and on Conseilliere’s Creek to west.
