Abstract
Description
This travel article from the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism highlights the single house, one of the most visible reminders in downtown Charleston of the Barbados-Carolina connection. Unique to Charleston, the traditional Single House is a long narrow rectangle, one room wide with a single gabled roof. The short side of the roof faces the street. A street entrance on the short side leads to a porch (piazza in the Charleston vernacular) on the long side of the house. The main entrance to the house opens in the center of the long side and leads to a central stair hall, which separates the interior into two rooms on each floor.
