Four story brick building possibly built c. 1801 by Agnes Smith or by her son, Hugh Smith, in 1815. The Italianate style bracketed cornices and flat pedimented window cornices were applied to the facade in the 1850s by hardware merchants, James K Gardiner and Alexander Gordon.

Photographer Charles N. Bayless, funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, photographed and recorded the Carolina Lowcountry between 1970 and 1988. The South Carolina Project took place between 1977 and 1979.
