Description and Narrative:
Completed in 1960 and expanded in 1965 and 1967, Woodlawn is a two-story single-family home in Quinby, South Carolina, listed as a locally significant late landmark example of Colonial Revival and Neoclassical architecture. These styles were originally popular among turn of the century Gilded Age elites, but elaborate, high style examples such as Woodlawn were uncommon by the middle of the twentieth century. Built as a showcase home by owner Charles Mitchell, the property consists of a residential wing, ballroom wing, and guest wing that intersect to form a central courtyard. The home’s interior showcases a variety of heavily carved wood moldings in a variety of motifs. The exterior is heavily influenced by Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, while interiors, especially in the ballroom wing, are based on the architectural precedent established by John Ringling’s Ca’ d’Zan and Henry Flagler’s Whitehall in Florida. Listed in the National Register May 13, 2019.
