City Directories and History: “Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Sherwood built the present house, which was partially destroyed by fire in early 1941 and restored that same year. The grounds are significant because of the interest of the Sherwoods in camellias, azaleas, and landscape planting. Steep Gully, a prominent natural drainage feature of the Conway area, runs through the grounds. This was also the site of the Peggy Ludlam Spring, a natural spring which was an attraction for the children attending nearby Burroughs School.”
