This is one of Roots and Recall’s favorite houses in Walterboro. It is not the most beautiful or largest, it simply offers a nice look at what individuals were building in downtown Walterboro.
Built before 1890 by O.T. Canady, a “mechanic” who apparently built several houses in Walterboro, this one-story frame house has a large
gable, with an over-sized louvered opening, extending over the center portion of the veranda . The veranda has turned Victorian posts and an entablature with a decorated frieze. A bracketed cornice under the extension is repeated in the gable. The centered entrance, with transom and sidelights, is flanked by paired windows. (SCDAH)
