Broad Street's most spacious accommodation!

I. HISTORY OF JACOBSON BUILDING AT 19 BROAD

Built in 1794 on one of the nation's most prestigious streets, Jacobson Building at 19 Broad exhibits authenticity characteristic of its historical evolution. The building was constructed by merchant Andrew Kerr in 1794; served as the Bank of the State of South Carolina from 1817 to 1838; the South Western Railroad Bank from 1840 to 1861; the News & Courier until 1902; and the Law Offices of I.H. Jacobson in the 1950's.

19 Broad Street was principally designed by architect Nathaniel F. Potter, famous for his work on the original Charleston Hotel and Millford Plantation in the 1800's. Potter was trained by famous German architects Karl Friedrich Reichert and Karl Friedrich Schinkel. The building's original granite facade, weighing several tons, crashed famously through Broad Street's underground water mains in the Charleston Earthquake of 1886. At the time, 19 Broad Street operated as a beacon of New South Industrialism under the leadership of B.R. Riordan and Captain F.W. Dawson of the News & Courier.

In the 1950’s, the building became the Law Offices of I.H. Jacobson, thereby giving rise to the letters affixed to its facade today: Jacobson Building. Today, proprietors Michael and Jan Jacobson own and operate Jacobson Building at 19 Broad as a tastefully-appointed and affordable alternative to overpriced hotels and undersized properties, providing guests value through superior location and spacious accommodations. With a 2500 square-foot apartment, ceilings climbing 16 feet high, and unparalleled location, Jacobson Building at 19 Broad offers you a great deal plus a great deal more.

II. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Jacobson Building at 19 Broad boasts a location second to none, embedded in Charleston's grandest historic architecture, worthiest fine dining, world-class art galleries, prestigious real estate, and stunning coastal parks. We are in the heart of Historic Charlestowne. Gadsden Alley and Four-Post Alley, which run through the first floor of our property, connect two of the most affluent boroughs in all of Charleston: the French Quarter and South of Broad. With King Street's booming haute cuisine and shopping district immediately to the west, East Bay's southern cuisine and market district immediately to the east, and South of Broad's soaring mansions and meandering alleyways immediately to the south, we grant you unprecedented access to Charleston.

As reported by CBS News, Charleston's Broad Street was listed in 2012 as one of “America's Top 10 Greatest Streets” by the American Planning Association. Among others, the list includes Wall Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway. To quote the listing, 'This is one of the most historically and architecturally significant streets in the country, a street that embraces the past while living in the present and planning for the future' (APA Chief Executive Officer Paul Farmer, FAICP). In 2014, Huffington Post announced Fodor’s top-ten listing of Charleston’s Broad Street in its ranking of “America’s Best Main Streets.”

Broad Street is touted as Charleston’s fine art destination, dubbed 'Gallery Row' by native talent and international enthusiasts alike. Our property is in the center of Gallery Row, amidst a collection of today's top art galleries. Guests can join local artists and vendors for a night of wine-tasting, networking, and exploring on the first Friday of every month for Gallery Row's First Friday's On Broad Art Walk. Broad Street is also home to Charleston's most impressive attorneys, realtors, bankers, architects, and designers. Broad Street is simply the place to be.

Our location's natural beauty rivals that of both its historic architecture and fine art galleries. Around the corner from us is the famous Rainbow Row on East Bay, a liaison between the Battery and Waterfront Park. With such invaluable proximity to everything from blue porpoises and white egrets nestled in the parks' carefully conserved marshlands, to colonial courtyards and ancient oaks preserved meticulously in the surrounding boroughs, our location is nothing short of enchanted.

Broad Street's multifaceted beauty is well complemented by impeccable cuisine, as you will find innumerable restaurants within a mile of our property on lower East Bay Street, Market Street, and upper King Street. On our block alone, you will find Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery, Blind Tiger Pub, Brown Dog Deli, Oak Steakhouse, Goat Sheep Cow, and Gaulart and Maliclet’s “Fast & French.”

Please refer to our featured Insider Guide for an impressive collection of the most coveted destinations and activities in all of Charleston, backed by over 100 years of our family’s roots here. We are confident there is something inspiring for everybody who visits this city and we are honored to show you accordingly.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1950

                      About the owner: Michael Jacobson was born in Charleston, South Carolina, the first son of I.H. Jacobson and Frances Solomon Jacobson. At the time, his father 'Jake' owned and operated the Law Offices of I.H. Jacobson at 19 Broad Street, thereby giving rise to the letters that remain on the building to this day: Jacobson Building. Michael's mother, Frances, was a second generation Charlestonian and the youngest daughter of Sam Solomon, founder of the Sam Solomon Company. In its day, the Sam Solomon Company was an iconic department store in Charleston and various other southeastern cities. Born in central South Carolina, Jan came to Charleston in the 1970's as the Sam Solomon Company's Corporate Director of Media. While employed at his grandfather's company, Michael met Jan, who soon became his fiance. Their first apartment as newlyweds was in the Jacobson Building at 19 Broad Street. In the early 2000's, Michael and Jan left the corporate world behind and fulfilled their dream of owning and operating an accommodation in the building that housed their first apartment: Jacobson Building at 19 Broad. Mike and Jan have been married for over 30 years and have three children: Joseph, Sophie, and Aaron. They are delighted to share this most magical home with guests of their beloved city.
