News About The Apartments

The Prevost Apartments were built c. 1917 or earlier.  They were built to house families coming to Greenville after WWI.  We believe the 1 BR buildings were built earlier, but no records can be found to substantiate this notion.  We do know the 2BR building was completed in 1918 due to correspondence by Marshall Blair Prevost to and from the contractor.

Over the many years, the apartments gave residents a happy home.  They fell into a state of disrepair during the time they were held in a Trust.  When the trust ended in 2002, Elena Prevost Lamberson and her husband, attorney Gary Lamberson began the 16 month historic renovations on the buildings.

Our thanks to Cely Construction Company, Heather Colin at City of Greenville Historic Renovations, Dan Elswick of the South Carolina Department of Archives & History and to Greenville Historian Judy Bainbridge of Furman University for helping us plan and complete the Certified Historic Renovations of these buildings. We recently were proud to mount a plaque on each building for The National Registry of Historic Places.
