Description

The John Rutledge House, 116 Broad Street, Charleston, is a fine example of a "Charleston double house." The centered front gable, dentil molding, and triangular pediment door are both distinctive in style and represent the 1850s alterations made to a typical Georgian house. The feature of this photograph is the elaborate ironwork, which is also typical of Charleston construction. This photograph was taken in 1935.
