Miles Brewton House27 King Street 
This house is considered to be one of the finest Georgian Palladian houses in America, and is still owned by descendants of the original owner and slave trader Miles Brewton. In 1822 after reports of an attempted slave uprising, a vast wrought iron barrier of “cheveaux-de-frise” was added. It was used as a military headquarters during the Revolutionary and the Civil Wars.
