The Porcher-Simonds House 1
Charleston, South Carolina | Photography
Charleston, South Carolina is where my husband and I love to travel most. It was the main destination for our honeymoon to look at the amazing Antebellum architecture, learn about our country’s history, and experience southern charm.
The Porcher-Simonds House is my favorite building in Charleston located at 29 East Battery Street. I love this particular photography because I waited to get this shot as the horse drawn Old South Carriage Company passed by the home. We have a large metal print of this picture in our master bedroom.
“The Porcher-Simonds House is a historic home in downtown Charleston, SC. The name should be pronounced as “Porshay”, and with a long “I” as “Seye-monds”. The hyphenated name for the house combines the surname of the man who had it built in 1856, Francis Porcher, and the owner who remodeled it in the 1890’s, John Simonds. The house was subdivided into 3 condominiums in 1982.”
