This Easley edifice was built sometime in the late 1800s as a simple, one-story house. By the early twentieth century, owner Dr. J.C. Walker had turned it into an impressive Greek Revival manse, surrounded by bucolic scenery featuring ponies and grazing cows.
A 1913 photo owned by the Pickens County Library shows the home soon after it had been enlarged, looking much as it does today, though some cosmetic changes over the years can be seen. The home remains privately-owned and is at times used as a wedding and event venue.
Do you know a story or have any information about the Dr. J.C. Walker Home? If so, please send it to the South Carolina Picture Project. Thank you!
