Best Happy Ending for a Vacant House 

Preservation Society buys Nassau Street cottage

Staff Pick

In 1892, an African American named Henry L. Small bought some land near the northern end of Nassau Street and built himself a modest home. By the fall of 2012, Small's house — every bit as historically significant as the mansions south of Broad Street — was in pretty bad shape. The house was sitting vacant, with gaps between the walls and the roof and a pile of wood scraps in the overgrown side yard. Finally, in December, the Preservation Society of Charleston spent $30,000 from the new Charleston Vernacular Revolving Fund to buy the cottage at 227 Nassau St. The Society's plan is to renovate the house and sell it to a first-time homebuyer
