circa 1835

This notable three and one half story single house is situated on lot number 233 of the Grand Modell as granted by the Lords Proprietors in 1694. This remains one of the largest residential lots in the city. The present house was built by the Reverend Gervais on the foundation of an earlier brick dwelling. The earlier dwelling was constructed circa 1760 by Benjamin Yarnold, one of America's earliest composers. The Reverend Gervais was for many years the rector of St. John's Episcopal Church on Johns Island. In 1851 Gervais published a pamphlet opposing secession, and in 1854 he published three volumes of sermons. The novelist Josephine Pinckney, author of "Three O'clock Dinner," was born here in 1895. The property was also the original location of the Gaud School for Boys, which operated from 1906 to 1918 in a two story brick building in the back yard.
