Paul H. Rogers House, Darlington County (628 W. Home Ave., Hartsville)
|Facade||Right Oblique||Main Entrance|
The Paul H. Rogers House is significant as an excellent example of Colonial Revival residential architecture and for its association with Paul. H. Rogers (1883-1960), prominent Hartsville industrialist and businessman who served as president of Carolina Fiber Company and as mayor of Hartsville. The house was built in 1927 for Rogers and was designed by architect Franklin Gordon of Charlotte, North Carolina. This two-story frame residence has a rectangular plan, with a five-bay fašade, a hip roof, and a one-story stoop with iron balustraded balcony, supported by two Tuscan columns, at the central entrance. The central entry features a single-leaf six panel door with fanlight and sidelights. The second story features a four-part Palladian window above the balcony which further contributes to the Colonial Revival character of the residence. One-story porches with Chippendale balustraded balconies are at the left and right elevations; the porch on the left elevation has been enclosed to create a sunroom, while the porch on the right elevation is supported by two pairs of Tuscan columns. The main block of the house, porches and front stoop feature a full entablature with stylized Gothic motif and guttae. Listed in the National Register September 8, 1994.
