Description and Narrative:
Built in 1910, the Robert J. and Lula Ginn House is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as an excellent example of an intact Colonial Revival residence in Anderson, South Carolina. Apart from some changes to the kitchen and upstairs bathroom, the house is remarkably unchanged from its 1910 appearance. The building features a hipped roof with intersecting gables over multiple full height polygonal bays topped with massive pediments, massive granite chimneys, and an extensive wraparound porch with sixteen Tuscan columns and entablature. The house has thirty-six large one-over-one double hung sash windows. The majority of the windows have the original wavy glass still in place. Around 1912 a portion of the original rear wrap around porch was enclosed to facilitate the addition of an indoor kitchen. There are six sets of bay windows facing north, south and east. The house sits on an elevated lot, fronting Webb Street to the east and bordered by Tate Alley to the north. The main house is placed impressively upon a granite rubble stone foundation, and features terracing, flared and graduated cheek-walled stone and concrete entry steps, and capped granite retaining walls along its street and alley elevations. The property also retains one original outbuilding. The Ginn House reflects a facet of Colonial Revival design that emphasized the adaptation of colonial architectural details rather than academic replication of colonial era buildings. Listed in the National Register September 23, 2019.
