Nathaniel Russell House
Nathaniel Russell House Review
One of the nation's finest examples of Federal-style architecture, the Nathaniel Russell House was built in 1808, when Russell was 70 years old. Its grand beauty is proof of the immense wealth he accumulated as one of the city's leading merchants. In addition to the famous "free-flying" staircase that spirals up three stories with no visible support, the ornate interior is distinguished by fine, Charleston-made furniture as well as paintings and works on paper by well-known American and European artists, including Henry Benbridge, Samuel F. B. Morse, and George Romney. The extensive formal garden is worth a leisurely stroll.
