Historic Houses of Charleston


Hamrick House

401_fort_hill_drive_standard

This Georgian house was built in 1930. In the 1970s, the construction of the interstate required the Hamrick family to have their home moved. The house was jacked up and then transported along a rail to its new foundation 80 feet back from the cliff face. The home offers sweeping views of Charleston and the interstate below.
