Description

The Josiah Smith Tennent House stands out as a landmark and is a focal point on the gateway to the city of Charleston. Constructed in 1859, this brick mansion is significant for both its architecture and history. In 1862, it was used as a Confederate hospital called the Soldiers’ Relief Home. It has had a variety of uses over the past 150 years, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. In 1993, the city gave the property to a nonprofit, and a major restoration followed, funded by millions in private donations and grants. The renovation received a South Carolina Historic Preservation Award in 2004. Today, this vast mansion with over 10,000 sq. ft of interior space features two wide wrap-around piazzas, giant wrought iron gates, multiple living and dining
