The Ashley Inn
“This historic Charleston bed and breakfast was built by Alexander Black, an inventor of rice and cotton processing equipment. Since then the property has changed hands several times.
One of the owners in modern times had converted the complex into three apartments, one in the former slave quarters (The Carriage House) behind the main house, one in the first floor of the main house, and one that included the second and third floors of the main house.
The previous owner bought the property which was in much disrepair, in 1992. They totally restored the main house and slave quarters inside and out, paved the drive and parking areas, and planted a new garden with brick walking paths, adding a fish pond, and fountain.” Read more about the history of the Ashley Inn.
The Cannonboro Inn
“The Cannonboro Inn is a Historic Charleston inn built in 1853 by William Lucas. It is a Charleston single house built in the Victorian style of architecture. Mr. Lucas, a wealthy rice planter, was married to Charlotte Hune and they parented 10 children. Their plantation was called “wedge” plantation and was located northeast of Charleston near McClellanville.
The Lucas family was a family of note in Charleston with Jonathan Lucas Street two blocks from the inn who was William’s father. His great, great, great aunt was Eliza Lucas (Pinkney) and was credited with having introduced Indigo into South Carolina in 1744.” Read more about the Cannonboro Inn
