Description 

Among the finest examples of nineteenth century conversions of Federal-period homes into Neoclassical mansions by addition of colonnades. Symbolic of the wealth brought to the South by the cotton trade, this house has a finely detailed Doric peristyle colonnade skillfully joined to an existing structure. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 7, 1973
