No Photo Available

The Brockinton-Scott House is architecturally significant both for its evolutionary development and as an example of the classical influence on vernacular domestic design in South Carolina and is historically significant for its associations with locally prominent individuals. The house is believed to have been built by John Fowler and Elizabeth Scott Brockinton. Dr. Brockinton was a prominent physician, businessman, and civic leader in the Kingstree area. He also served as Mayor and Sheriff of Kingstree. In 1884, Mrs. Brockinton conveyed the house to her son-in-law and daughter, Dr. D.C. and Martha Brockinton Scott. The original portion of the house is believed to have been constructed ca. 1840 to 1878 and additions were made ca. 1879 and 1911. Asymmetrical in form the house consists of: the original two-story octagonal block, which forms the rear (west) wing; the ca. 1879 two-story rectangular main block, which comprises the southeast section; and the ca. 1911 two-story rectangular block, which forms the right (north) wing. Set on raised brick piers, the house is of frame construction and is faced with clapboard. The house features a medium hipped tin roof; a deep, wide, boxed cornice with plain frieze extends unbroken around the roofline. Listed in the National Register January 22, 1980. The Brockinton-Scott House has since been demolished. Removed from the National Register December 12, 1989.
