The Lost Architecture: June 2021 Edition

Posted: June 22, 2021

This building was located at 52-54 Beaufain Street on the site where Memminger Auditorium is today. There’s no history of this house in HCF’s Archives. What is known is that it was demolished soon after this ca. 1937 photograph was taken for the construction of Memminger High School, which later became the site of the auditorium. Portions of the woodwork in the house were saved and given to The Charleston Museum. (News & Courier, 9/2/1938, 9/4/1938, 9/7/1938; Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps.)
