Wordless Wednesday–Historic Homes of Chesterfield, SC

Pin It
9 - Austin-Craig House

This house was completed in 1858 as a residence for a Mr. Austin, a lawyer from Pennsylvania. Local  legend says Union troops attempted to burn the house during the Civil War but stopped when told by a slave woman it was built for a "Yankee". Some evidence of the fire remains visible today.
