17 Tradd Street, Charleston, SC

17 Tradd St. c.1750. On the corner of Bedon's Alley.
One of the houses on Tradd Street as recommended by Mr. H. Number 17 is austere, dignified and restrained. The flowers in the window boxes and the planter are white, mirroring the white crape myrtle trees in the street. One imagines the residents of Number 17 wear crisp, pressed garments and never speak in anything but full sentences, with few contractions or meaningless pauses. Fountain pens, never ball points. IMs? How vulgar!
"Tradition says Tradd Street was named for Robert Tradd who supposedly was the first child of European descent born in the Province. lt is more likely that it was named for his father, Richard Tradd, who by 1679 was living at the northeast corner of present-day Tradd and East Bay. Early deeds refer to "the little street that runs from Cooper River past Mr. Tradd's house."
(Stockton, unpub. notes)
"A house which Charles Warham built her c. 1750, may have survived or been rebuilt after the great fire of 1778. The roofline has been altered.
(Stoney, This is Charleston , p. 101)"
