Signficant Architectural Features:
Built in 1885 by W.G. Armstrong, the house after many years of neglect has recently been completely restored by its present owners. The house is of English style brick in an American bond with flat arches above the windows, and a gable roof with a sufficient pitch to allow for a full attic story. The windows on the south were floor to ceiling which allowed for access to piazzas running the length of the house. Among the finest new features of the house are the deep-veined marble mantels taken from a Santee River Plantation, and the specially created cornices on the interior.
