Scott Building

Corner of Fife and Capitol Streets

This structure was built in 1891 for brothers W.D. and G.W. Scott; after 1914 it was known as the Scott Brothers Drug Store & Soda Fountain, an early Charleston cornerstone. The Queen Anne-Renaissance-style features pressed brick and Victorian turrets. If you look next door, you will see the First Empire Federal Savings and Loan Association building. This was once the site of the famed Burlew Opera House, a glittering 1,500 seat theatre.
