The J. C. Teasley House was the home of James Chesley Teasley (1861-1942), a prominent Marion County businessman. Teasley played a pivotal role in the growth and development of the town of Mullins from a struggling late nineteenth railroad stop to an early twentieth century boomtown with a tobacco market serving the entire Pee Dee region of South Carolina. By 1938, Mullins’s tobacco market was the largest in the state. Teasley’s residence from 1901 until his death in 1942, the house is the extant historic resource most closely associated with his life and his role in the Pee Dee tobacco industry. The house has architectural integrity to just after 1901 and consists of a ca. 1875 house which faced westerly and a post-1901 southerly-oriented wing which when built became the principal fašade of the house. This modest single-story frame house is constructed in a classic folk form quite common throughout the rural South. Listed in the National Register May 30, 2001.
