68TH CAROLOPOLIS AWARDS CEREMONY
PRESENTED BY CARRIAGE PROPERTIES
February 2, 2022, at the historic Sottile Theatre
The 19th century masonry structure at 129 Queen was originally owned by a Catholic Nunnery and used as a home for orphans. It was left vacant for an extended period prior to restoration, leaving both the interior and exterior susceptible to water damage and rot. In 2010, a fire burned through a significant portion of the piazza, the central stair hall, and the roof. Water and smoke damaged the existing interior plaster throughout the house.
The house remained unoccupied until purchased by Craig and Kate Coit, who completed extensive renovations. In recognition of exceptional efforts to preserve this historic structure, 129 Queen was presented an Exterior Carolopolis Award in 2017. You can read more about this project and other past winners on our website.
This is what the Carolopolis Award is all about — honoring the very best of preservation in Charleston.
