Brailsford & Susan Jenkins House

— circa 1905 —

This substantial house was built by J. Brailsford Jenkins, soon after they purchased the site in 1905. The lot previously had been part of the extensive grounds of present-day 38 Church Street, where Dr. Vincent LeSeigneur had a famous garden in the nineteenth century.

J. Brailsford Jenkins, a prosperous salesman, and his wife, the former Susan Lining Dawson, were members of aristocratic Lowcountry families. The home they built is of late Victorian design, combining the Queen Anne and Colonial Revival styles. It is notable for its simple lines, fanciful sawn and turned wood details, spacious interconnecting rooms and gracious staircase. The house was rehabilitated by successive owners in the 1980s and '90s.
