This McClellanville home is known as the Kate Vincent Waring House for one of its early inhabitants, but historically it is also called the Arthur Skipper House for its builder. Arthur Skipper built this home some time prior to his death in 1899. He also was the owner of Tibwin Plantation, which he purchased in 1875 for farming. In 1912 Kate Wyman Vincent married Dr. James Cash Waring, and the couple made this their residence.
Dr. Waring, the grandson of Dr. Morton Waring of Pinopolis, was also a theologian and served as rector of the St. James-Santee Episcopal Church from 1898 through 1901. He then solely practiced medicine in McClellanville. The home sat vacant for a short period but has undergone extensive renovations and continues to be a private residence.

The Kate Vincent Waring House is listed in the National Register as part of the McClellanville Historic District:
The McClellanville Historic District contains a collection of approximately 105 residential, commercial, religious and educational properties dating from ca. 1860 to ca. 1935. This collection is architecturally significant as an illustration of the founding of a pineland resort village and its development into a small but stable year-round commercial fishing village. McClellanville begin in the late 1850s as a summer retreat for St. James Santee and Georgetown planters. The prevailing vernacular forms, especially the central hall farmhouse, predominated in early McClellanville architecture, although the more fashionable architectural styles began to receive attention and can be seen throughout the town: Carpenter Gothic, Queen Anne, and Italianate with a rare Colonial Revival example. The commercial strip developed in the early 20th century and are of frame construction built directly on the road. The historic district is visually unified by the nearly ubiquitous wooden frame construction, by the consistent scale of the house, lots, and their relation to the banks of the creek, by the tremendous live oak trees that permeate the town, and by the relative absence of contemporary commercial intrusions.
