Symphony Designer Showhouse Features Antebellum Parsonage
Jim Weinberg participates in the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s 38th Annual Designer Showhouse at 50 Hasell Street is an antebellum treasure located in the heart of downtown Charleston. Built in 1846, the parsonage of St. Johannes Lutheran Church is an imposing two-story Single House with double piazzas and fireplaces in nearly all of the spacious, high-ceilinged rooms.
This historic property has been transformed into a showcase by some of the Lowcountry’s most talented interior designers. From March 19 through April 19, the public will be invited to view their work from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday. (The Showhouse will be closed Easter Sunday.)
This little taste of Europe features an exclusive boutique, designer sales, and an indoor café. In addition, guests will be invited to tour the historic sanctuary, called “a jewel of a church,” along with the Taizé Chapel and adjacent gardens.
Now in its 38th year, the League’s Designer Showhouse has been a major fundraising event for the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and for student scholarships that total more than $30,000 annually.
