The Herald reported on May 24, 1902 – “Architect H.E. White went to Yorkville Tuesday to submit plans and specifications for the new school building. The plans were accepted, estimated cost is $12,000.” On July 2, 1920 the Herald further reported, “The contract for the YV Graded School has been let to the Keller and Company. The building is to cost $12,500., Mr. H.E. White of Rock Hill is the architect.” (Keller and Co., at 134 West Main Street. John J. Keller and J.R. Logan).
This fine Queen Anne Victorian home was built by John R. Logan, Sheriff of York County and owner of a local lumber yard, in 1889. The builder spared no expense when constructing this home, which is evident in the solid granite foundation carved to the contour of the hexagonal cupolas on the wraparound porches. The interior of the home features fireplaces and mantels in every room. The beautiful restoration, including original stained glass, was by Jim and Lynn Crane, the current owners.
