  • John Brown House, Liberty Hill SC (39 KB)
    Home built 1835-1842 with hand-hewn timbers mortised with wooden pegs. The brass doorknobs were imported form England. It was in this home that refugees from Charleston and Columbia were cared for during William T. Sherman’s raid through South Carolina. After robbing the Browns of provisions, silver and other valuables, the soldiers went down to the cellar and poured kerosene oil, molasses and feathers together. During Reconstruction, Mr. Brown lost his home, which was sold for taxes. Dr. Bush bought the property and returned it to Mr. Brown.

    At the time of Joseph Cunninham’s death in 1850, he is said to be the richest man in South Carolina, his estate at his death being valued at over one million dollars-all made from the ground, because he was a farmer. He left his South Carolina home to William Curry Cunningham, son of his brother Robert.  The house was sold after the death of John C. Cunningham in 1892 to Governor Richards.
