The Brown House


The Brown HouseDo you believe in ghosts? This Greene Street home, noted for many years as "The Brown House" due to its unpainted exterior, has had some eerie happenings reported throughout the years. On more than one occasion, former residents have given accounts of the front porch furniture mysteriously moving across the floor without a soul in sight. This classic upcountry farmhouse, constructed in the early 1800's, is one of Cheraw's oldest residences. Originally built as a one-story four-room cottage, when the second floor was added, the stairs descended to the back porch rather than the front hall. For much of its' 200-year plus history, the home was owned by the Harrington and Duvall family and was passed from generation to generation. This home is included in the 213-acre National Register Cheraw Historic District.
