New Hope Farm is significant because its architecture and landscape convey an excellent example of a nineteenth century upcountry South Carolina farmstead. The centerpiece of the farm is an 1885 Folk Victorian residence. The residence is unique as an architect-designed farmhouse with numerous Victorian decorative elements. Few such houses from this era are extant in the upcountry and few are in such good condition. The house was completed from a design by an architect known as E. Foggette. His signed elevation drawings for this house remain in possession of the family. It is a one-story farmhouse with intersecting gables, a steeply-pitched pressed metal-shingled roof, weatherboard siding, and a wraparound hip-roofed porch. Surrounding the house on the adjoining 25 acres is a complex of domestic and agricultural outbuildings documenting activity on the farm ca. 1885-1905, including a small two-story frame servant’s house, a smokehouse, a privy, a corn crib, a buggy barn and a garage. New Hope Farm is also significant for its association with seven generations of the Snoddy family, prominent in the Wellford community. Listed in the National Register May 20, 1999.
