John Rutledge of Charleston SC

John Rutledge House. Today, used as an B &B Inn
Upon the death of John Rutledge in Charleston in 1814, he estimated the value of his crops at between $30,000 to $40,000. According to his last will and testament he not only owned a plantation but a home in Charleston as well. The last will and testament may be read as it was written on South Carolina Pioneers  The reading of this old document makes the history of his home come alive as we perceive his due diligence in farming as well as politics. John Rutledge was prominent in civil affairs, and was a signer of the Constitution of the United States.
