The Governor's House Inn
The Historic Charleston Supper Club, founded in 2020, this week announced that it is changing its location to the historic Governor’s House Inn, located on Broad St. in downtown Charleston. The Governor’s House Inn was built in 1760 and was the home of Edward Rutledge, one of this country’s founding fathers. Rutledge, who was the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence, hosted many dignitaries during his time there, including George Washington. Also, born in this the house (in 1782) was Edward’s daughter, Sarah, who would go on to write the very first published cookbook in Charleston’s history, “The Carolina Housewife.” Mike Hebb, a chef and a culinary historian, is the operator of the Historic Charleston Supper Club. He offers a five-course tasting menu where each of the first three courses focuses on a specific period of Charleston’s food history: Colonial, Antebellum, and Reconstruction. Each dish served is authentic to the time period. Hebb also dresses in period attire and narrates each course with culinary and Charleston history. “I am so excited about this opportunity to move the Historic Charleston Supper Club to the Governor’s House Inn,” said Hebb. “The Governor’s House Inn has such a rich culinary and political history, and I look forward to now being a small part of that history and sharing it with others.” The Historic Charleston Supper Club will be offering dinners at the Governor’s House Inn on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30 pm. A glass of Madeira wine, the most popular wine of this era, will also be offered upon arrival. The series opens the weekend of March 12th, 2022.
