The Palmer Home

DSCN4924DSCN4930

The Palmer Home Bed & Breakfast was built in 1848 by John Ravenel, whose son designed the “Little David”, the first semi-submersible vessel and the forerunner to the submarine. Thanks to its excellent construction and thirty-six inch walls, the Palmer Home has withstood hurricanes, tornadoes and even the first major earthquake in the history of the United States in 1896. This private home is now operated as a bed and breakfast by third generation owner, Francess Palmer. The house is furnished and decorated with antiques dating back two hundred years.
