Philip Simmons was a very talented African American who was known in US for his fine painting and art work. After his death, the citizen of Charleston took an initiative to make him live amongst them through his work. So they opened his house to the public as an art museum. They conserved his house like it was when he lived in it. Everything is still in place from after he died in 1922.

The house also has a beautiful garden around where you will see colorful flowers and soft grass. The complete charge of this house gallery is with the locality association and they have not kept any stone unturned to preserve this piece of culture.
