Treadwell Street Historic District contains the intact sections of an early twentieth century African American neighborhood. The district provides significant information about the history of the African American community in Orangeburg in the early twentieth century. According to local residents, this neighborhood was one of the most well to do African American neighborhoods in the city. All residents of Treadwell Street, as well as those of the Treadwell-Amelia Streets intersection, listed in the 1920-1921 Orangeburg City Directory, were African American. Most of those listed were laborers or tradesmen, but there were also a few professionals and businessmen living in the neighborhood. The district contains approximately forty buildings, all but one of which were originally residences. The majority of the buildings were constructed between ca. 1890 and ca. 1930 and are set on small lots planted with bushes, trees and lawns. Most of the houses are one-story, weatherboard frame, with simple design and detailing reflecting vernacular architectural modes of the period, including Victorian and Bungalow. Listed in the National Register September 20, 1985.
