Tabby Manse, also known as Thomas Fuller House, is a building in Beaufort, South Carolina.[3][4]

Tabby Manse

The house is one of the few remaining early buildings on the South Carolina coast whose exterior walls are built of tabby, a material composed of oysters shells and limestone. The walls are two-foot thick and covered with stucco. It was built around 1788 by Thomas Fuller, a prominent local planter.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1] It is also a contributing property in the Beaufort Historic District, which is a National Historic Landmark.
