                          Art Nouveau Elegance In The Pettigru Historic District      








  to the Circa 1917 Prevost Apartments Home Page


Downtown Greenville, SC 29601 in the Pettigru Historic 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 South Carolina Department of History and Archives, we have transformed these lovely, historically significant, circa 1917 buildings into a charming, secure, comfortable presence in the beautiful, Pettigru Historic District -- possibly the most desirable location in downtown Greenville.  Many attorney and professional offices in this area.  Our three buildings are certified by the National Park Service and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Each building has a beautiful plaque.


                          LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...

And, what a great location! We are walking distance [3-6 blocks] from:  Publix grocery store & shopping center on E. McBee Ave, Cleveland Park, Bi Lo Center, Peace Center and Main Street.  

In warm weather, on Thursdays and Fridays at 6:00 PM,  Greenville's Main Street is closed to traffic and downtown becomes a big party! It is great fun to walk only 6 blocks to Main Street, eat dinner with friends and enjoy the jazz bands.

Our apartments are currently leased with all friendly, helpful tenants.  They can help you learn your way around Greenville.  We have even leased a number of apts sight unseen and the tenants are very happy.

Downtown Greenville is  FUN!

Visit our HISTORY Page to read the 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.
