City Directories and History: “The Sams House, built ca. 1818, was originally one room deep with two rooms and a central hall on each floor. Raised on a high foundation and facing south, the house is typical of the Beaufort style. The house is five bays wide with double piazzas across the facade. Several additions have been made to the original structure. During the Civil War the house was used as Contraband Hospital Number 10.”
