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! Guests will have private access to the upstairs unit above the Harkin Cafe on Queen Street. Guests also have access to an off-street parking space during your stay.

Came to Charleston with a few girlfriends. The apartment was perfect. Had an excellent location, and was very clean. Would absolutely stay here again. We loved our trip and the apartment was a big contributing factor!

My wife and I spent Christmas here with our daughter and son-in-law. We had a great time, unfortunately it was during an extremely cold weekend, but we loved the place and will definitely come back and stay at the same place .

Such as wonderful place! Amazing location! Super clean and very spacious. The balcony is a game changer and was absolutely amazing during our stay. Felt very safe and private. Curtains aren’t blackout so hard to sleep through the morning and the windows aren’t very sound proof. Nevertheless, an amazing vacation and I will definitely be saying again!

November 2022

We loved our stay here! The location was great and within walking distance to the waterfront and so many great restaurants, bars and coffee shops. In fact, the cafe below the unit was adorable and delicious. The home had a great layout and it was well appointed with everything we needed for a great stay. We slept 4 comfortably and although we were out during most of the day, we loved coming back and throwing on a movie at night with a glass of wine. I would recommend staying here and would come back and stay again for sure.
