Charleston Single House History

Kevin O’Connor interviews a neighbor to learn more about the history of this neighborhood

While on the job site for the Charleston Single House project, TOH host Kevin O’Connor met with neighbor Carolyn Epperly. Carolyn knew the previous, 80-year owners of the historical house. Brothers Billy and Garret Conlon, long-time fans of TOH (“They would be so proud!” Carolyn says), lived in the 1840s home for their whole lives. Vincent Chicco was an even earlier owner of the home, renowned for his contributions to Charleston’s liquor and beer scene; the Italian immigrant’s namesake was secured to a new Italian restaurant that opened in Charleston about five years ago.
