Constructed in the aftermath of the great fire of 1810, the building at 12 State Street fulfills a charter dating back to the earliest British colony. Initially serving as a rental property for its first owner, one Mrs. Cook, the structure weathered over 200 years of turbulent history, including the War Between the States and Charleston’s notorious earthquake of 1886.  Today the prosperous French Quarter ranks as one of the nation’s top ten venues for art galleries, and 12 State Street stands as the only example of Regency period architecture in the area–attracting the attention of artists and architects alike.
