Description and Narrative:
Constructed from 1905 to 1907, the Epps-McGill Farmhouse is a two-story Folk Victorian structure that served as the residence for generations of local farmers working the fifty-one-acre farmstead that historically surrounded the property. Situated on the two acres that remain of the original farm, it is listed for its association with the development of agriculture and tenant farming from 1953 to 1976 in Williamsburg County, specifically as an unusual example of a property that ultimately came into the legal possession of an African American family who first lived there as sharecroppers. The Epps-McGill Farmhouse is also a rare surviving example of Folk Victorian architecture in Williamsburg County, with intact original character-defining feature such as the its unique porch ceilings, offset bay window, and wood soffit pendants. The interior of the structure features the original staircase, decorative mantels, and interior wood paneling. Listed in the National Register September 25, 2020.
