Anson Street was named for the British Naval Officer Lord Admiral George Anson. In 1746 he subdivided the property that became the city's first suburb, Ansonborough. In 1838 one of the most destructive fires in America's history swept through the city, virtually destroying Ansonborough. The swath of destruction covered 150 acres and destroyed at least 1,100 buildings. As a consequence of the calamity, some of the grandest antebellum homes had to be rebuilt in this most charming and desirable neighborhood. This tour includes the interiors of private houses in Ansonborough.
