City Directories and History: “Typical of Beaufort’s smaller houses, it is called “The Little Taj” due to the reflection of the house in the pool across the road. Built ca. 1856, the two-story frame structure rests on a raised brick foundation. Double piazzas span the five-bay-wide house. F.ntrances on both floors are framed by rectangular transoms and sidelights. Two interior corbel capped chimneys rise from the gable roof.”
