This historic 19th century building was home to a free school for children created by Charleston philanthropist William Crafts. The location was originally called Friend Street for the Quakers who migrated to South Carolina in the 1690ís seeking religious asylum. In the 1790ís, the area was developed as a pleasure ground called Vauxhall Gardens, featuring a theater, zoo and picnic ground.
In 1820, the Catholic diocese bought the property across the street where the Gothic Revival Cathedral of St. John the Baptist offers a stunningly spectacle, and the neighborhood echoes with its chiming belfry.
Crafts bought the current lot and built his first school in 1859, which burned in a fire during the Civil War and was rebuilt in 1881. The school was closed in the 1970ís and the building used as administration offices until extensively remodeled into upscale condominiums.
As indicated by its long historic as a desirable location, the Crafts House is ideally-situated in the heart of Charlestonís historic district. Itís an easy, short walk to historic St. Michaelís Church, the Dock Street Theatre, The Battery and White Point Garden. The condos are also convenient to some of Charlestonís finest restaurants nearby at Oak Steak House, High Cotton, Magnoliaís, and Grill 225, as well as chic shopping and art galleries along King Street, the City Market and the French Quarter.
