Photograph of 69 Church Street (Capers-Motte House or the Capers-Huger Smith House) taken during the 18th annual American Association of Museums meeting in Charleston. Frary also captured a portion of the First Baptist Church (61 Church Street). Daniel Elliott Huger Smith owned the house at the time the image was taken and is reflected in the photographer's notation on reverse, "Motte-Huger-Smith House 69 Church St."

The meeting coincided with the 150th Anniversary of the founding of The Charleston Museum and then Director, Laura Bragg arranged for tours of various sights and plantations around the Lowcountry.
