Facade Left Oblique Rear Elevation

The Mack-Belk House, an example of Late Victorian architecture with Italianate influences, consists of a one-story rear section built in the 1860s and a two-story main block built about 1890. The house shows influences of the Italianate style, including paired windows in the central bay, segmental arches, wide roof overhangs, and a hip roof. There is a one-story hip-roofed porch across the fašade and wrapping around a portion of the east elevation. The porch has chamfered posts and a decorative balustrade. The brick is laid in six-to-one common bond. The house has been associated with the Mack and Belk families for about one hundred years. It was occupied by Dr. Edward Mack, a native of Fort Mill who was a Presbyterian minister that later taught for a number of years at the seminary located in Richmond, Virginia. After his death, the house was owned by his sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Mack Belk. Her husband, Thomas Heath Belk, operated a mercantile store on Fort Mill’s Main Street and was part of the Belk family which was developing a chain of stores. Listed in the National Register June 11, 1992.
