Historic home on the NRHP that was located in Pelham, SC, but has now been moved to another location
The Arthur Barnwell House is reputed to have been built between 1880 and 1900 by the Pelham Manufacturing Company as a residence for its first president, Arthur Barnwell, in conjunction with Pelham Mills. The house is significant for its association with the development of Pelham Mills, a cotton factory established in the 1880s, and architecturally as the only local example of the Queen Anne style. The mill village and mill ruins are located on the opposite bank of the Enoree River from the Barnwell House. The house is a two-and-one-half story wood frame residence supported by a brick pier foundation. Its irregular plan features two two-story polygonal bays projecting opposite each other on the northeast and southwest elevations and a one-story kitchen ell projecting from the northwest elevation. The house is sheathed in shiplap siding and has a steep gable roof. Exterior decorative features include white-painted horizontal and vertical boards contrasting with the yellow siding, which serve to define and delineate the fenestration of the first and second stories. Two interior and one exterior brick chimneys are located on the main block of the house. The roofing is modern composition shingle over the original metal roof. Located a short distance north of the house is a large barn featuring a raised brick foundation with common bond and round arch ventilation openings, mortise and tenon frame construction, a cross gable roof with monitor, weatherboard and shingle wall covering, and a raised seam metal roof. Listed in the National Register March 19, 1982. - SCDAH
Sadly, after about 5 years, it appears as if this house is going to sit and rot where it was moved to in Spartanburg County. I drove by there this weekend and it is still sitting there, in the same un-assembled state it was in 2013.
This house was moved actually. The owners are reconstructing it on a plot of land about one mile away. Their progress is detailed at onedollarcottage.com/category/my-house. So not a total demolition!
Really ticked me off when I saw this. Luckily, I went there to photograph this home and a few other historic locations that day or I would have missed it entirely.
