Facade Right Oblique Right Elevation Porch Detail

The Russell-Heath House is significant as an example of an early twentieth century eclectic alteration (ca. 1906) of an early nineteenth century (ca. 1830) late Federal farmhouse, and for its association with Stewart W. Heath, a prominent businessman of Lancaster and Kershaw Counties. The main block of the house is a two-story, rectangular structure with a lateral gable roof and a one-story, gable-roof wing. The building has wooden clapboard siding with a brick pier foundation. The fašade has a projecting portico with four, square, freestanding, double-height, granite pillars with granite abacuses and a two-over-two-light double-hung sash window in the pedimented gable. The major exterior changes in the ca. 1906 renovation were the replacement of the porch with the present double-height portico, addition of the east terrace, removal of the southwest chimney on the main block and its replacement with two paired windows in the present dining room, and the rebuilding of exterior chimneys. Located to the west and south of the house are two, small, early twentieth-century, vertical plank sheds which are contributing resources associated with the property. Listed in the National Register February 14, 1990.
