Gov. John Rutledge House, also known as John Rutledge House, is a house at 116 Broad Street in Charleston, South Carolina. Completed in 1763 by an unknown architect, it was the home of John Rutledge, a governor of South Carolina and a signer of the U.S. Constitution.[3] John's younger brother Edward was another governor of South Carolina and lived at the Edward Rutledge House at 117 Broad Street. Following the American Civil War, the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina met here, from 1866 until 1868.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1973.[2][4] Christopher Werner is believed to have done the wrought iron work.[5]

John Rutledge House Inn

In 1989, the house was renovated and opened to the public as the John Rutledge House Inn. [6]

The inn has 19 guest rooms, ranging from standard hotel rooms to large suites. 11 of these rooms are located in the main house, with the remaining 8 being in the carriage houses (located at the rear of the property). In addition to the guest rooms, the house contains a ball room (open to the public), which is used for afternoon tea as well as breakfast.

The John Rutledge House has received a 4 diamond rating from AAA, and is a member of both the Select Registry and Historic Hotels of America.
