In 2014, The National Historic Landmark known as Brick House Ruins made the Seven to Save list generated by the Preservation Society of Charleston. by 2017, a stabilization plan is in place and over one third of the $70,000 needed to complete the work has been raised.
The handsome brick structure, built c. 1725, burned in 1929. Since that time the remaining brick walls have been slowly deteriorating, with threat of collapse in some areas. The National Trust for Historic Preservation provided two grants to further the process of emergency stabilization. Contractor Richard Marks, engineer John Moore, and architect Simons Young are ready to commence their work in stabilizing the south wall in January 2018. A 501(c)(3) exemption has been applied for and gifts may be made to help preserve this nationally important work of historic architecture reflecting our country's early colonial period.
