Built around the 1820’s this is an example of a Lowcountry ‘High House’. There are not many left around here.
The idea is simple, all through the Lowcountry it is wet and damp. As a planters house the owners knew the value of getting above the ground. In the early 1800’s this would have been a significant expense.
The home has been complete renovated and is now a historic site in Walterboro, South Carolina. The town is just outside Charleston and a place we like to explore on a quiet Sunday morning.
