The Amelia Street Historic District contains fifteen residences constructed between 1890 and 1929. Most of the residences are large, two-story, frame houses with Victorian decorative woodwork. Several of these houses were owned by some of Orangeburg’s more prominent citizens. The scale, composition and design of these houses reflect the builders’ awareness of the important role that the owners played in Orangeburg society. Also included in the district are three modest, one-story, frame houses with a few Victorian decorative features, as well as a one-story brick house that was designed by Miller F. Whittaker. Although the remaining houses in the district are not built on such a grand scale or with such architectural distinction, they are significant as examples of basicly unaltered residences from ca. 1890 to ca. 1929 which add to the historical character of the streetscape. Listed in the National Register September 20, 1985.
