The Boone-Douthit House is an excellent example of an upstate South Carolina plantation house that was expanded as its occupants’ needs changed over the years and as these occupants pursued other interests. The original façade bears features of simplified Greek Revival architecture. The main house was built in at least three stages. The original house is believed to have been built in 1849, and is a two-story I-House with two rooms on either side of a central hallway on the first floor and two rooms, a narrow connecting hallway, and a small enclosed center room on the second floor. A shed roof in back covered a single story with two additional rooms and a rearward continuation of the central hallway. Two massive brick chimneys are located at the rear of the two-story section. Two additions, rear ells, were added around 1900. The site includes five additional buildings of historical significance: a large barn, a secondary house, an early building that may have served as a doctors office, a small storage building, and another small building that may have been used for silkworm culture. Listed in the National Register July 3, 1997.
