Historical Information:
Shortly after building a tavern on the south side of the courthouse square in 1832, Christopher Orr built a home on Benson Street, some 50 yards away. It is considered first in town to have marble mantels. The basement rooms were used as office apartments. Orr was father of James L. Orr, judge, governor of SC and minister to Russia. In 1844, the house was moved to its present location, several blocks away but within the original town boundary, and is a private residential.
