Description

Excerpt from Historic Houses of South Carolina

SO interwoven are social life, agricultural interests, industrial evolution with commercial interests, that it is said The lady of a Southern planter will lay out the whole annual produce of a rice plantation in silver and gold, muslins, lace veils and new liveries, carry a hogshead of tobacco on her head and trail a bale of sea-island cotton at her heels, while a lady of Boston or Salem, will wrap herself up in the net proceeds of a cargo of whale Oil, and tie on her hat with a quintal of cod-fish. Thus it is that the beautiful old houses in South Carolina grew as the external expression of a certain ease, grace and dignity of life led by the landed gentry.

Near the coast the spacious verandas came in response to the need for coolness, and shadowy retreats from the brilliant sunshine of this sub-tropical climate, tall ceilings, large win dows, and lattice jalousie blinds were borrowed from the neighboring Spanish Indies, while formal gardens and gate ways came over in the inner consciousness of the Cavalier stock that settled low country Carolina and found expression in manner fitting the locality.

Although the first settlers had confined themselves to the neighborhood of Charleston, the fact that Georgia was being settled (1732-34) protected the Western frontier of the State and gave a feeling of security hitherto unknown, so that the interior Of the State received many immigrants.
