Inscription.
Built in 1817 by John Cart, a
"measurer of lumber", this house
is a typical Charleston single house
with western exposure piazzas
extending the length of the house,
upstairs and down. Prior to the
20th century, a body of tidewater
known as Bennett Pond came up
to the back of the 210-foot lot.
The original house, with two full
stories and a dormer story included
two rooms on each floor and a
hallway landing at the top of the
stairs between. Two second floor
baths and a kitchen on the first
floor are 20th century additions.
The original cistern to collect and
store rainwater, once common in
the old city of Charleston, still
stands at the back of the house.
The eleventh and current owner
and resident, J. Douglas Donehue,
purchased the house in 1966.
