Anthony Toomer, a master builder, Revolutionary Patriot, member of the South Carolina General Assembly and Officer in the Charleston Battalion of Artillery, built this two story frame house and afterwards left it to his daughter, Mrs. Daniel Remousin. A later owner, Thomas F. Purse, remodeled the house in the 1830's and added the masonry front of the house, c. 1840.
