The Webb-Coleman House (Christian’s Post Office) is an excellent intact example of an upcountry Federal farmhouse built in the period 1800-1825. It is also associated with the Webb and Coleman families of Edgefield County (after 1895 Saluda County), families which occupied the house and farmed the property for over one hundred and twenty years. The house is a two-and-one-half-story, five-bay, gable-roofed, frame and weatherboard Federal farmhouse. In the mid-nineteenth century, a one-story, full-length, shed-roofed, frame and weatherboard wing was added. In 1915, a one-story, gable-roofed, frame and weatherboard ell was added. At this time, a full-length, shed-roofed porch was attached to the north elevation of the ell. Further renovation in 1934 included the addition of a bathroom, rebuilding the chimneys, and altering the front door. There are four contributing outbuildings associated with this property. A mid-to late-nineteenth century cotton house, an early twentieth century garage, an early 1930s dollhouse, and an early twentieth century tenant house. The house operated as a post office from 1833-1844. Listed in the National Register April 24, 1992.
