The grand residence sits back from the street and welcomes you with a semicircular driveway and front facing portico supported by columns with Temple of the Winds capitals. A descendant of the original merchant-owner, Miss Marguerite Kerrsion left the estate to the Episcopal Church of South Carolina who maintained the home as the diocesan office until 1971.
