Description

Welcome to "Mollihon," the historical plantation estate of Col. Benjamin Herndon, United States patriot and hero of the Revolutionary War! Col. Herndon built this home in the early 1790's for his family after he moved them here from North Carolina on 1000 acres that was awarded to him as a "Thank You" from the U.S. Government for his outstanding leadership and bravery during the Revolution. This Greek Revival beauty now sits on 49 acres and is an excellent property for horses and livestock. Located in Whitmire, SC, it's less than an hour to the State Capital downtown Columbia, and only about 20 minutes to the lovely town of Newberry. Traveling west, it's only about 45 minutes to Spartanburg and less than an hour to Greenville. GREAT central location!! It was built of cypress & oak, and peg construction. Many of the chimney brick made on site are still in place. Methodist Bishop Francis Asbury was often a guest of the Herndons as he traveled his circuit. The home has 6 fireplaces, and there have been some room additions over the years. The main level has the entry hall, living room, dining room, kitchen with living area and an owner's suite. Upstairs is a center room den, flanked by three additional bedrooms. All rooms are huge! About 200 yards behind home is the Herndon family cemetary, the final resting place of the Colonel, his two wives and other family members. The home is in need of some repairs and updating...and is being sold AS IS. Priced accordingly.
