22-28 Queen Street

— circa 1803 —

These notable stuccoed brick tenements were constructed as rental property in 1803 by the William Johnson family.
William Johnson, Sr., originally from New York, was a blacksmith and planter revered at his death as a patriot having served in the Continental Congress. His son, Johnson, Jr., born in Charleston and educated at Princeton, was, at his death, an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Johnson's Row, as originally constructed, had a door and two windows at ground level. Queen Street, formerly named Dock Street, was a slum before rehabilitation in the 1940s.
