The Thomas Lamboll House at 19 King Street is a perfect example of how an old Charleston home has weathered and adjusted itself to the changing times of several centuries. Also, when known and understood, it reads like a history book of Charleston and the fortunes and misfortunes which have beset her.
Built around 1739 by Thomas Lee for Thomas Lamboll, it has known many owners, most of whom have seen fit to make changes; however, through it all the house has maintained its original charm and atmosphere.
Your hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Emerson Read invite you to journey back in time as you enjoy the ambiance and history of Charleston. The Lamboll House is located just off the Battery in the heart of the historic district. It offers two large guest bedrooms with private baths. French doors leading onto the third floor piazza which has a distant view of the harbor overlooking the tree tops.
