The chronicle of how this gem of an apartment came to be and the tale of its namesake previous owner provide a traditional Charlestonian historic preservation story. In 2018, a couple from New York City relocated to Charleston and bought the property at 62 Queen Street. Their vision was to bring the building and its heritage back to life, paying homage to the history born within its walls. The building was in a general state of disrepair following extended periods of neglect. So for more than two years the couple painstakingly restored the property, and enlarged it for the enjoyment of generations to come. The property owners worked extensively with preservation experts to have the building listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. This recognition celebrates the home's former owner Dianna Brown, who navigated through divisions of race and class to carve out a niche for herself in Charleston’s burgeoning antiquities market. Brown was the first Black woman in the city to enter the antiques trade in 1913, working until her death in 1949. Despite major limitations placed on women of color in the early 20th century, Brown's antique shop thrived and she left behind an enduring legacy. Fast forward to the present, the property at 62 Queen Street, including the apartment called Dianna Brown’s Place, is available for guest stays in this Charleston French Quarter jewel – come visit soon!

The neighborhood

French Quarter: The French Quarter is the oldest section of Downtown Charleston, bounded on the south by Broad Street and the north by the City Market. It is home to the Charleston Art Walk, an evening held many times a year where Charleston residents and visitors alike enjoy gallery hopping and wine tasting along its storied streets. Here you will also find theaters like the famed Dock Street, churches, inns and secret gardens waiting to be discovered. Charleston's historic French Quarter is a small neighborhood on the Southeastern corner of the peninsula, with Broad, Meeting, East Bay, and South Market streets acting as perimeters. The neighborhood is filled with historic churches and museums, theatres, art galleries and even some haunted cemeteries. The French Quarter may be the most romantic of Charleston's districts, and is perfect for leisurely walks, exploring historic sites, and immersing yourself in centuries of city history.

Owner Story

In 2018, New York City residents Stuart Gross and Marlena Parker relocated to Charleston and bought the property at 62 Queen Street in the city’s historic French Quarter. The couple's vision was to bring the building and its heritage back to life, paying homage to the history born within its walls. When they first noticed the property for sale, they were delighted with its downtown location and the significant backstory behind the structure. But the building was in a general state of disrepair following extended periods of neglect. So for more than two years Gross and Parker painstakingly restored the property, and enlarged it for the enjoyment of generations to come. The restoration was completed with comprehensive guidance from the Charleston Board of Architectural Review. The couple also worked extensively with preservation experts to have the building listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. This recognition celebrates the home's former owner Dianna Brown, who navigated through divisions of race and class to carve out a niche for herself in Charleston’s burgeoning antiquities market. Brown was the first Black woman in the city to enter the antiques trade in 1913, working until her death in 1949. Despite major limitations placed on women of color in the early 20th century, Brown's antique shop at 62 Queen thrived. A successful entrepreneur, Brown developed an impressive business network across the country. Thanks to the restoration and addition to the property, the premises now features beautiful spaces designed with artistic flair and panache. And in October of 2019, a portion of the first floor became the home of Harken Cafe, a welcoming noshery in the neighborhood. Gross and Parker are proud to be part of historic preservation efforts in Charleston, and their restoration at 62 Queen Street is an exciting addition to this vibrant city's celebration of its past!
