Charleston in Charleston County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Ann Peacock House
Built c. 1760
the Charleston single house was built on
part of the original lot #37 of the plat
of Charleston known as the "Grand Modell."
The home was erected by Wm. Hall for
Ann Peacock, a wealthy widow
from St. George's Parish, Dorchester.
After her death in 1769 the property changed
owners several times and in 1877 the
premises were left to St. Michael's Church.
According to vestry minutes the house was
in such disrepair that it was sold at auction.
The property passed by descent through
only two other families before being
acquired by the present owners.
Erected by Preservation Society of Charleston.
