This property, a part of one of the
original town lots in the Grand Model
of Charles Towne was bought by
Paul Douxsaint, merchant, planter, and
French Huguenot immigrant, in 1725.

The Charleston single house of French
type construction appears to have been
built in the mid 1700's and is one of
two houses in this block that escaped
the Great Fire of 1775.

The present interior details reflect both
late Georgian and early Federal periods.
