Pendleton SC Historic House Tour

Updated on January 13, 2016

Historic House Tour in Historic Pendleton, SC

The 2012 Historic House Tour in Pendleton, SC (c. 1790) was sponsored by Pendleton Historic Foundation and Pendleton Leadership Foundation in conjunction with the Fall Harvest Festival. The proceeds from last year's tour were used for a new decorative fence for St. Paul's Episcopal Churchyard which is the class project of the 2012 Leadership Pendleton Class. The committee has decided to do the Historic House Tour every other year so there will not be one in 2013. If you have an historic home that you would be interested in being on the 2014 Tour, please let us know.As an added attraction, the Pendleton Leadership Foundation is also sponsoring a Scarecrow Contest so when you come to town for the Fall Festival and the Historic House Tour, you will be greeted by some very clever, creative scarecrows all over our town!Note: If this is your first visit to Squidoo, you will want to scroll all the way through before coming back up and clicking links that interest you. Thank you and we hope you enjoy learning all about the Pendleton Historic House Tour. We hope you will sign our Guestbook below so that we will know you were here.Photo Credit: Cropped flyer for Pendleton Historic House Tour by Pendleton Historic Foundation and used with permission.

Quote from Jo McConnell

Office Administrator - Pendleton Historic Foundation and on the Fall Harvest Festival Committee

"This tour is an opportunity to see homes that have rarely or never been opened to the public. The homeowners have graciously allowed us to offer you a chance to see them and support the Pendleton Leadership Class Project - a new decorative fence surrounding St. Paul's Episcopal Churchyard. Purchase a ticket and help enhance one of the most historically significant sites in Historic Pendleton."Jo McConnell, Office Administrator - Pendleton Historic Foundation

The original section of the house was built between 1809 and 1811 by William Robertson. The property was resold numerous times between 1822 and 1835, first to Joab Mauldin, then J.B. Earle & Co., Joseph Grisham, E.B. Benson and finally to John T. Sloan in 1835. Research indicates that additions were made to the house about 1825 and 1835. The house was remodeled c. 1960 by Dean Harlan McClure, College of Architecture at Clemson University and again in 2010 by current owners, Denise & Greg Bauld.Numerous boxwoods on the property are believed to be about 200 years old giving the property its name.

The house is believed to have been built c. 1830. The house passed through the Prioleau and Dawson families to Elizabeth Carolina Bell as part of her marriage dowry to Lt. Edward Templar Shubrick, U.S.N. of Charleston. The house was purchased by B.F. Gantt in 1889 and remained in the family until 1963. The house is believed to have been remodeled in 1850, when the second story was added over the main part of the house and a room was added to the main floor. The house was restored in the 1960s by Prof. Vernon Hodges, a noted architectural historian with Clemson University's College of Architecture. More extensive renovations have occurred in recent times. The house was named for the 14 kinds of vines found growing in the garden and is currently the home of Kater & Ulrike Heine.Vine Hill is also for sale.Photo Credit: Photo property of Pendleton Historic Foundation and used with permission.

John Sitton aka Sittonbull on Squidoo Remembers These Historic House

Thank you, John, for sharing your memories

Miss Janie Hard lived in Vine Hill when I was growing up and often made me cookies. My two Great Aunts, Marie and Dudie McPhail, Grandmother Sitton's sisters, lived in the Poe House and part of my regular chores was to cut their grass with a reel to reel push mower for $.50 and feed scratch to the chickens out back. ;>). Joe and Carrie Sitton and Coudin' Rhetta Aull lived in the Pickens House. I was in school with and friends with the McClure kids and with Dean McClure and not long ago found out that my Great Grandfather actually bought and resold "Boxwood" sometime after reconstruction, but don't have the exact date. It's great to see that they have all been well preserved and continue to be historic treasures!

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is located on East Queen St. in Pendleton, SC. It was built in 1822 and contains a Jaridine Pipe organ that was purchased for the church in 1848. Interred in its cemetery are: Clemson College founders Thomas Greene Clemson, and his wife, Anna Calhoun Clemson, the daughter of US Statesman John C. Calhoun; Confederate generals Clement Hoffman Stevens (1821-1864) and Barnard Elliot Bee (1824-1861), credited with giving Gen. T.J. Jackson the nickname "Stonewall."The original bell at St. Paul's Episcopal Church was melted and used for ammunition during the Civil War. More history can be read on the St. Paul's/Holy Trinity Episcopal Parish Website: http://www.holytrinityclemson.org/?q=stpauls.Leadership Pendleton Class of 2012 chose as their community project to replace the existing fence around the graveyard at St. Paul's Episcopal Church with a steel decorative fence that would go better with the original decorative fence in the front of the church. St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a very important part of our town's history and tourists enjoy visiting the interesting graveyard and beautiful church. The new fence will be an asset to this historic site. The proceeds from the historic house tour will go toward this fence project.. .Photo Credit: Photo property of Pendleton Historic Foundation and used with permission.

First Board Meeting Tuesday, September 17, 2013 @ 6 PM Pendleton Library - Meeting Room The Pendleton Leadership Foundation is to be administered by a 16 member board of directors consisting of the officers and the class representatives of previous Leadership Pendleton classes.

The board's first order of business will be to review the current by-laws, propose a slate of officers for 2014, review and approve the proposed budget, financial procedures and planned activities as well as set the board meeting schedule. The board or directors will meet at least quarterly If you would be interested in participating on the board, please plan to attend the board meeting on Tuesday. We are trying to reach out as many Leadership Pendleton graduates as possible. St. Paul Class Projects 2012 and 2013

The Leadership Pendleton Class of 2012 has been working diligently to raise the funds needed to erect a new metal decorative fence around St. Paul's churchyard where many of the early famous residents of Pendleton are buried. The new fence will replace the current rusted chain-link fence. The Pendleton Leadership Foundation provided the "seed" money for the project which was raised from last year's Historic Home Tour during Fall Festival. The fencing material has been ordered and will soon be installed. Look for the dedication announcement later this fall.

The Leadership Pendleton Class of 2013 project is a scavenger hunt to discover the many historic sites around downtown Pendleton. The scavenger hunt is scheduled during the Fall Festival sponsored by the Pendleton Leadership Foundation on October 5. Prizes will be awarded to successful participants and everyone who participates will receive a t-shirt commemorating the event. It is designed for family participating and should be fun. It also will test your knowledge of the history of Pendleton. Sign up at their booth at Fall Festival to participate.Pendleton Scavenger Hunt Website

      Another great lens Nancy. If I am able to be in town then I would like to go for I have ties to the four houses and have been in them all many times. Like you it's been many, many years. Miss Janie Hard lived in Vine Hill when I was growing up and often made me cookies. My two Great Aunts, Marie and Dudie McPhail, Grandmother Sitton's sisters, lived in the Poe House and part of my regular chores was to cut their grass with a reel to reel push mower for $.50 and feed scratch to the chickens out back. ;>). Joe and Carrie Sitton and Coudin' Rhetta Aull lived in the Pickens House. I was in school with and friends with the McClure kids and with Dean McClure and not long ago found out that my Great Grandfather actually bought and resold "Boxwood" sometime after reconstruction, but don't have the exact date. It's great to see that they have all been well preserved and continue to be historic treasures!

      Cool Lens, I love Historical Houses! When I first saw Poe House listed my first thoughts were Edgar (cause he sure did get around; mainly because he usually couldn't pay his rent, poor guy, he must be a confused ghostie, we moved his house here in the Bronx about a block over, lol).

      @Michey LM: Michey, thank you so much for visiting, commenting and blessing. Maybe one day you can come to Pendleton to visit and I will take you on a private tour.
