Seay House

106 Darby Rd
Spartanburg SC 29306
Area: Spartanburg
(864) 596-3501

Built as early as the 1790s, the Seay House is believed to be the oldest homestead standing in the City of Spartanburg. Interpretation by the Spartanburg County Historical Association focuses on the lives of women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as three unmarried daughters of Kinsman Seay - Ruthy, Patsy, and Sarah - lived a simple farm life in this house. The oldest portion of this dwelling is a typical Scots-Irish, 1 ��__ story log house. The logs are hand hewn, and the pipestem fieldstone chimney is a style commonly found in Virginia but unusual for Upstate South Carolina.

The house is open the third Saturday of the month, April through October, except July, from 10am to 4pm. Group and school tours can also be arranged by appointment at a cost of $3 per person. Please schedule at least two weeks in advance. 864-596-3501; http://www.spartanburghistory.org/
