220 Grace Street - The Grove (circa 1780)

The Grove was built between 1780-90 for Thomas Pierce.  This brick residence once stood in a grove of oak trees, which was cut down and sold to the Russian Navy during the Crimean War.  The building was once used as a boarding house and a hotel.  It was restored in 1956 by Lieutenant Governor and Mrs. A.E.S. Stephens.
