The Pink House is a historic house that is one of the oldest buildings in South Carolina and the oldest building in Charleston.

The house was built between 1694 and 1712 of pinkish Bermuda stone. The date of the building has been the subject of dispute. Two local historians fixed the date as 1712,but a construction date as late as 1745 has been suggested.

The tile gambrel roof dates to the eighteenth century. The building was a tavern in the 1750s.
