The Gadsden House was built by Christopher Gadsden, a revolutionary war hero and statesman representing the colony in the First Continental Congress. It was given as a wedding gift to his son Philip Gadsden and continued to house members of the Gadsden family until the early 20th Century.

The house saw decline in the mid 20th century, as did much of the historic Ansonborough neighborhood it is located within, but was saved from demolition in 1959 by the Historic Charleston Foundation as their first step in revitalizing the area. The final step in fully restoring the historic landmark is currently underway as part of a collaborative effort by Luxury Simplified Construction in partnership with the Historic Charleston Foundation.
