The Foster home, about 1904, was constructed by A. H. Foster, a Confederate veteran who owned stores at both 107, 115-117 East
Main Street, Union, S.C. He married Hettie Brandon, the daughter of Col. Thomas Brandon. The original home at this site was a large Eastlake style home which is reported to have burned. Mr. Foster was a highly successful merchant both in Union and Greenville, S.C. The home is occupied by his great-granddaughter (1984), Hettie Fowler.
