The Quarters was constructed in 1905 and has two stories with balconies, columns , and a view of the Cooper River. Quarters A has been left vacant since the Navy Base closed in 1996 and is in need of major stabilization work. The purpose of the cleanup was to landscape around the exterior of the building. Attorney Evan Guthrie helped clean around the front of the property removing soil, leaves, and roots that was covering up a patio. There was several years’ worth of build up debris that had completely obscured the patio area. Mr. Guthrie help reveal the patio after several hours of work with other volunteers. Other volunteers helped clean up the back of the property by removing bushes, shrubs, and limbs that covered a backyard area that was cleared and opened up. Attorney Guthrie grew up and went to grade school around the former Charleston Naval Base while it was still operational and remembers what the officer houses looked like when they were properly maintained. Mr. Guthrie was happy to be able to contribute to an effort to try to save and beautify such an important and historical structure. Attorney Guthrie looks forward to being able to help out with similar projects with the Preservation Society Of Charleston and the Charleston Commandry of the Naval Order of the United States in the future.
