Faber House

Built in the late 1830s, Faber House is an Early Classical Revival mansion located in Charleston’s historic Hampstead Village neighborhood.  Although some local structures incorporated aspects of Palladian style, the Faber House showcases the purity of this form with its strict symmetry, soaring portico, pediment roof, Classical detailing, and use of the Greek orders.  In addition, Faber House is one of the few extant antebellum suburban mansions on Charleston’s East Side.  Renamed the Hemetic Hotel, it was one of the only Charleston hotels that served black travelers from 1920 to 1932.

This historic site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2019.
