Nathaniel Russell House

2014 Grant of $6,500—Atlanta, Louisiana Chapters

Classified as a National Historic Landmark in 1973 and owned by the Historic Charleston Foundation, the Nathaniel Russell House's history provides a window into the city's past while also demonstrating the Foundation's commitment to preserving the Lowcountry's built and cultural environment.

For two centuries, visitors have admired the grand Federal-style town house of the prominent merchant from Rhode Island, with over 50,000 patrons from across the world visiting the house annually.

The lasting French influence on Charleston's culture was deeply felt by Nathaniel Russell and other owners of the home.

Restoration: cleaning and repainting of the exterior wood cornice on the main house.
