Black and white photograph of the second floor west room north wall of the Robert Brewton House located at 71 Church Street.

Built sometime between 1721 and 1740 by Robert Brewton, it is a large two and one-half story stuccoed brick single house with three bays, quoins, and a molded brick cornice. The current facade has been covered with a modern masonry material and the 19th century piazzas have been removed.

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.
