IMPORTANT - COVID-19 SPRING PILGRIMAGE ANNOUNCEMENT

The Haven (c. 1843)

Built by Isaac Williams and his brother, Thomas, both of whom, were “free men of color” from South Carolina. Isaac as a laborer and Thomas was a blacksmith; both were considered prosperous and had their own blacksmith shop on the corner of the property. This raised cottage is reinforced with handmade bricks, and its chimneys still stand perfectly straight after over 150 years. The broad, low-gable roof is typical of South Carolina low-country architecture.

National Register Historic District

This private residence is one of the many examples Columbus’ impeccably maintained and preserved historic homes, and has been featured in our annual Spring Pilgrimage.
