City Directories and History: 1936 – Paul M. Wheeler, 1963 – William B. Ward, Dale Stanley
There are many descendants of the Ward family who constructed this old home. It belonged to Dr. and Mrs. W.B. Ward, one of Rock Hill’s well known surgeons who worked for years with Dr’s. Alton G. Brown and Frank S. Fairey. His original offices were on the corner of Pendleton and North Confederate across the street from Saint Phillips Hospital, an institution he leased from the Fennell family who had the hospital constructed as the Fennell Infirmary.
Jane Lewis reported on FB 10.1.14, ” Oakland Avenue was our address. The Ward home is now the Education Center of some sort for Winthrop Univ. Sam and Lila Campbell and their five children lived next door to us. Jack and Etta Ward and their eight or nine children lived next to the Wards. Campbell home later became Tucker Tourist home.Dr. Bundy was Dr. Simpson’s partner. Later, they moved to the street,must have been White Street as it was just down street from the White House. It was the Street behind St. John’s Court. Dr. Haddad’s office was beside them.”
