District is THE place to be! Here is our story:
It required more than 15 months of gently renovating, rewiring, steam cleaning,
glazing, sanding, painting, remodeling, updating, rebuilding to restore the historic
elegance that once was the Prevost Apartments. Working with the

historically significant, circa 1917
buildings into a charming, secure, comfortable presence in the beautiful, Pettigru
Historic District -- possibly the most desirable location in downtown

interesting information about the history of the Apartments. In 1949, the
Apartments were placed in a Trust by Gerda Luyties Prevost. Unfortunately, after
her death they
were allowed to deteriorate. However, the Trust ended
in September 2002, and the Prevost Apartments became the property
of the Prevosts' only grand daughter, Elena Prevost Lamberson, who lives
with her family on Johns Island, near Charleston, SC. Elena and Gary
Lamberson proceeded with a massive historical renovation project with the
help of many talented individuals.
Gary & Elena Prevost Lamberson renovated the Apartments in 2003
