I have carried out work in Charleston, South Carolina, on several occasions. On one visit I was asked for advice on paint analysis and colours in the Nathaniel Russell House.
It belonged to Nathaniel Russell, a Rhode Island merchant, who spent $80,000 on the building before 1809. He and his wife Sarah lived in the house during the early 19th century. It was sold to the state in 1955 and is now used by the Historic Charleston Foundation as offices and also as a museum open for tours. The house is widely recognized as one of America’s most important Neoclassical houses
