Heyward House — Hardeeville, South Carolina
SC Picture Project | Jasper County | Heyward House
The Heyward House in Hardeeville is one of the oldest remaining structures in this Jasper County town. It was built for William Heyward around 1890. In 2009 the City of Hardeeville purchased the house for $125,000 as a potential site for a library and museum. The city subsequently applied to list the Heyward House in the National Register of Historic Places in hopes of receiving grant money to restore the dilapidated home. However, despite the home’s age in relation to other existing structures in Hardeeville, the National Register review board deemed it historically insignificant and rejected its inclusion in the historic roster.
Due to the home’s lack of historic designation, the city was denied two separate grants to restore it for public use. Without the funds needed to renovate the home and bring it up to safety codes, the town is revisiting the future of the house. Options include selling it to a buyer who agrees to restore and preserve the home’s facade or demolishing the home, selling the lot, and using the proceeds for city projects.
