The Thomas Price House
The brick house with its steep gambrel roof and inside end chimneys is most unusual for this section of the country. The bricks for the house were made on the premises and are laid in Flemish Bond. The plantation had as many as 28 slaves farming the land. Price was an entrepreneur who was licensed to sell spirituous liquors and to keep a "publick house of entertainment."
In addition to the main house, there is a kitchen building and a double-pen slave cabin. The cabin, originally located in Newberry County, was moved and painstakingly reconstructed on the site in 2004. This is one of few properties in the Upstate that affords this kind of opportunity to intrepret the history of enslaved men and women in the backcountry.
Price House is open year-round on Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00pm. From April to October, the house is also open on Saturdays from 11:00am to 5:00pm. We are closed on major holidays and for snow/ice. Reservations for groups of 10 or more are required and are also available on weekdays.
