Edward Wimberly House

This home in downtown St. Matthews was inspired by exhibits from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It was built in 1907 for Edward Wimberly, who died of pneumonia shortly after his elegant home was finished. In 1893 Wimberly married Mary Elizabeth Banks. Along with his brother-in-law, J.A. Banks, who served St. Matthews as mayor and South Carolina as both state representative and state senator, he established a popular store. The business, Banks-Wimberly, was very successful and was said to be the “largest business of any store between Columbia and Charleston.”

Wimberly was also involved in community affairs. He campaigned for the formation of Calhoun County, which was formed in 1908 – shortly after Wimberly’s passing – from portions of Lexington County and Orangeburg County.
