1. Alexander Christie House. The site for this house, which is wide enough to have accommodated a double house (like 87 Church Street, the Heyward-Washington House), shows that single houses were not necessarily preferred because of the narrowness of their lots.

2. Adam Style. The Adam style (or Adamesque and "Style of the Brothers Adam") is an 18th century neoclassical style of interior design and architecture, as practiced by the three Adam brothers from Scotland; of whom Robert Adam (1728–1792) and James Adam (1732–1794) were the most widely known.
