CHARLESTON ARCHITECTURE, SPIN 2

12 April 2008 | CHARLESTON S.C.
The photo above is typical of the majority of houses in the downtown historic district. There is a small gate or door onto the road and then the elegant porch is perpendicular to the road looking immediately at the side of the next door house.

Today I was told that in the 1700-1800, they taxed the town's people by the number of windows that faced the road. Hmmmm...

Can anyone (Terry V) tell me the REAL reason for such a design in Charleston?
