This impressive house on Bull Street, built circa 1854, was home to Francis Warrington Dawson — who as a newspaper owner and editor helped form what is now the Post and Courier (the Pulitzer award winning Charleston daily). As an editor, one of the issues he championed was banning the practice of dueling. Ironically, as a result of an altercation over improper advances towards a governess in his household by a Bull Street neighbor, Dawson was shot and killed. Interestingly, despite some very odd behavior, his attacker and neighbor was acquitted. While celebrated by some, others must have thought that verdict to be bull.
