The History of She Crab Soup in Charleston
According to legend, the first bowl of she-crab soup was made at John Rutledge House Inn in the 1920s. The Rutledge House was home to the former mayor of Charleston, Robert Goodwyn Rhett. Mayor Rhett’s butler, William Deas, prepared a meal for President William Howard Taft, who was visiting the city.
