This house, according to a written historical account, was probably built in the 1840s by James Lindsay. When erected, the main street in front of it was the main street of Due West and a part of the public road which ran from Ninety Six to Pendleton. The Lindsay family was the "first family" in this area and in 1764 its members secured land grants along the stream, "Lindsay branch," which runs behind this house. Among its later owners, in the 1870s, was Captain James Pratt, who served in Co. G, Orr's Rifles, and returned from the war as its captain. His daughter Nina married W. A Carter of south Georgia, and one of her grandsons was President Jimmy Carter, who has visited the property. This pristine property is rich in local history and has been very well taken care of. The quality is there and it's priced to SELL! Located right around the corner from Dixie High School and Erskine College, this beauty awaits you!!!

    Very nice house and property. How fun would it be to live in Due West? I was really looking for a picture of that half pond though!

    Due West is one of several interesting place names in SC, of which nobody really knows the origin. Most historians believe it’s a corruption of Dewitt’s or a similar name rather than a direction signal. The posted is house is a nice example of a typical three-bay Antebellum Greek Revival, which is included as the Lindsay-Bell House in the NRHP description of the Erskine College/ Due West Historic District.

    This one has me confused. It is certainly a beautiful house, but I would love for someone to tell me what the characteristics are that reflect an 1840 build date.

    Interesting, it has external wall chimneys. At that early build date, most 4 over 4’s of revival style and antebellum build date have internal wall chimineys between the rooms.

    Evidently, James Lindsay build several houses with similar features such as the chimney designs and balcony railing. Here’s an example…
