Nathaniel Russell House
In the early 1800s, the Nathaniel Russell House, a neoclassic dwelling, was the home of Nathaniel and Sarah Russell. The marriage of the Russells resulted in the merging of two great merchant families who made a fortune peddling rice and indigo. The interior of the home can only be described as graceful; intricate plasterwork, uniquely designed rooms, and a breathtaking free-flying staircase are just a few of the architectural highlights. Much of the art displayed around the home is of Charleston origin, and each room is decorated in fine turn-of-the-century style. Admission prices are USD10.
The city is awesome and rich with history and stories - however, this house is just an example of the fact that you can buy or have old furniture made. Barely anything is known about the family, and the tour is about 12 minutes. Not worth your time or money.
This was a great old house to visit, however, from a scrapbookers point of view, it was disapointing. You are not allowed to take pictures while inside the house. Other than that, it is a beautiful house, full of history, with everything from history that might have really been inside the house while it was lived in.
