This plantation style house was built in 1856 by the Simmonds Family as a summer home to escape the heat and fevers of Charleston. The lumber was brought up the Savannah river. The brick was made locally. The house stands on one of the highest locations in the district, making the view from it's tower spectacular. It was the scene of many weddings and social events, and wounded soldiers were housed here during the Civil War. The Redwood tree seeds were brought on horseback from the west. The cemetery adjoining the yard has headstones dating back to the 1840's. The floors in this beautiful home are made of oak and heart pine. Stairs on the 2nd level lead to a Watch Tower. The view is breath taking. The landscaping is wonderful. Many, many new trees and shrubs such as Magnolia, Dogwood, Cypress, Hydrangras,Hollies Hemlocks, Redwood, Palms,Roses, Crepe Myrtles and Banana have been added to the landscaping in the past few years. Upon entering the home thru double doors with 13 original window panes you are greeted with a beautiful view of the stairway to the 2nd level.The history of Abbeville County.Both the county and its county seat, the town of Abbeville , were named for the French town of the same name. Originally part of Ninety-Six District, the area was designated as Abbeville County in 1785. The county was settled primarily by Scotch-Irish and French Huguenot farmers in the mid-eighteenth century. A historic treaty with the Cherokee Indians was signed at Dewitt's Corner (now Due West) in 1777. Abbeville was known as a hotbed of secession, and at the end of the Civil War the last Confederate council of war was held there. Abbeville's most famous native son was John C. Calhoun (1782-1850), United States vice president, secretary of war and of state, and senator.
