Mrs. Emily Whaley (1911-1998) and her husband, Ben Scott Whaley (1909-1987), bought the circa 1754 Charleston Single House in 1938 and raised three daughters there. In 1942, Mrs. Whaley commissioned Landscape Architect Loutrel W. Briggs (1893-1977) to design a plan for their 30 x 110 foot plot behind their Pre-Revolutionary home on Church Street. Mrs. Whaley’s legacy is felt in the open garden rooms and her ever-lasting memoir, “Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden”.

The town is known as an antique mecca and now has a cult like following for something else…corn chowder. Chef Brandon Velie and his wife Jeanne opened up Juniper after falling in love with the town and with the building that Juniper now occupies.
Velie’s “cape corn chowder” attitude has catapulted Juniper to become one of the top places to eat in South Carolina. His farm to table approach in cooking has caught the attention of 2 governors of South Carolina and even Governor Chris Christy from New Jersey. And Velie’s love of cooking all started with the fond memory of his mother putting him to bed with a cookie every night.
