The Confederate Home
60-64 Broad Street
This building’s Victorian façade conceals a double tenement built in 1800. First operated as the Carolina Hotel, it was rented in 1867 as the Home for the Mothers, Widows and Daughters of Confederate Soldiers, also known as the Confederate Home. The building also housed the Confederate College, a school for young women, until the early 1920s. The building was damaged in the 1886 earthquake and repaired with donations sent in from all over the country.
