Built in the 1830s by rice planter Henry Faber, this grand house was—like its neighbor across the street, Presqu'ile—built on a spit of high land along the river. Its uses since that time reflect Charleston’s turbulent history. Faber died at age 57 and was buried in St. Philip’s churchyard. His brother Joseph completed the house. Then he sold it to Joshua John Ward, sometimes called “the king of the rice planters.” Born at Brookgreen Plantation near Georgetown in 1800, Ward was the largest slaveholder in America during his lifetime. He was considered the greatest and most innovative of the antebellum rice planters, developing a long grain version of the famous Carolina Gold variety which, during its brief heyday, commanded the highest price of any type of rice on the world market.
The Historic Charleston Foundation bought the house in 1964. In 1969 it was set on fire by vandals, but the building survived. Today the main structure and its outbuildings are used as office space.
