“A Really Old Door…”: Rediscovering Nathaniel Russell House’s Kitchen House by Grahame Long, Director of Museums at Historic Charleston Foundation
Constructed circa 1808, a rear outbuilding of the Nathaniel Russell House originally held a cook room, a laundry, and three living chambers for its enslaved. It was said, however, that mid-20th century renovations had destroyed all remnants of its original fabric. Those beliefs were false.
Discovering new data in 2019, Historic Charleston Foundation began peeling back modern materials within the Nathaniel Russell House’s kitchen and quarters to expose original construction and new data once thought lost. These discoveries are, at last, providing crucial representation to the enslaved who once toiled there.
Grahame Long is the director of museums for Historic Charleston Foundation. He has authored three books, published numerous articles, and lectured extensively throughout the southeast on various topics concerning material culture, decorative arts, and social histories of the Carolina Lowcountry.
