Useful, Ornamental, or Necessary in this Province: The Textile Inventory of John Dart, 1754

Record #:
John Dart’s 1754 inventory demonstrates the strength and diversity of Charles Town, South Carolina’s textile trade in the mid-eighteenth century. It was based on society’s demand for imported foreign-made goods and their search for self-definition. Dart exploited diverse commercial opportunities to reach consumers throughout North Carolina and the eastern region.
