Wade Hampton Hicks House, Darlington County (313 W. Home Ave., Hartsville)
|Facade||Left Oblique||Main Entrance|
The Wade Hampton Hicks House is significant as an intact example of Craftsman influenced residential architecture which evolved over time and for its association with Wade Hampton Hicks (1874-1945), prominent Hartsville farmer and businessman who founded W.H. Hicks and Son Feed and Seed Company. This house was built in 1901 as a one-story residence, but by 1919 a second story was added to accommodate the needs of Hicks’s growing family. The two-story residence, set upon a brick foundation, has a rectangular plan, a three-bay fašade and a hip roof which reveals wide overhangs and exposed rafter tails, and is clad in asphalt shingles. A one-story hip roof porch with wide overhang, exposed rafter tails and simple balustrade wraps onto the east and west elevations and is supported by paired square wood columns on brick piers. The central entry features a single-leaf, fifteen-light door with a Craftsman-influenced surround, shelf architrave, and sidelights. The main entrance also features a historic decorative spindle-work screen door. A small wooden carriage house/smokehouse, also constructed ca. 1901, is to the rear and contributes to the historic character of the property. Listed in the National Register September 8, 1994.
