City Directories and History: An outstanding example of the prosperity of Newberry County’s farm community in 1880’s as they began rebuilding their economic and social lives after the destruction of their homes and property in the Civil War era. This wonderful house was decorated with Italianate eve brackets and a wide double front porch all highly typical of the period and a through back to the 1850’s Carolina “I” house style.
This complex of the home and outbuildings is one of the most complete set of photographs R&R has ever seen from the 1985 survey period. It is a remarkable testament to the outstanding construction being employed at the time.
