And the answer is…309 East Bay Street, which had been located at the southwest corner of East Bay and Laurens streets. The two-story masonry store and dwelling was constructed ca. 1905. The ground floor operated as a grocery for at least six decades until it was demolished at the request of Historic Charleston Foundation so that the 18th century house at 116 Anson Street could be relocated to the site. After the house was relocated, the address became 39 Laurens Street. (Source: HCF Archives Property File.)
