Aiken Winter Colony Historic District III is important as an intact collection of residences constructed for and rented by winter residents. The district consists of forty-two properties constructed between ca. 1889 and ca. 1930. The properties include Aiken Preparatory School and residences, which range from one-story cottages to large estates with dependencies, located along tree-lined streets, many of which are divided by park-like medians. Nine of the properties in the district are not associated with the Winter Colony theme, but are similar to many of the more modest properties and contribute visually to the character of the district. Primary architectural stylistic influences include the Colonial Revival, Classical Revival, Victorian, Bungalow, and Queen Anne. Aiken Preparatory School, established in 1916 by Louise Eustis Hitchcock for the sons of winter residents, drew many colonists to this area. Two of the properties in the district are cottages associated with the Palmetto Inn, which is no longer standing. Listed in the National Register November 27, 1984.
