City Directories and History: “This house was originally two rooms over two, with a porch across the facade. A stoop has replaced the porch and a wing has been added to the rear. Windows are six over six (6/6) lights with exterior blinds. It is believed that the ca. 1855 house was moved to this location as part of the Robert Smalls estate. 715 New Street is atypical of Beaufort houses in that it faces west.”
