J. C. Richardson House, Robertville, SC
The J. C. Richardson House, located at the heart of the Robertville community in upper Jasper County, is significant for its association with James Clarence Richardson, a prominent Hampton County and Jasper County farmer, businessman, inventor, and local/state politician who called this house his home for most of his adult life and ran an important general store for the community on a nearby parcel. In addition, the J. C. Richardson House is significant as a stunning example of a two-story, center hall, Folk Victorian home in rural upper Jasper County, replete with Queen Anne influences, cutaway bay windows, a gorgeous Chinese Chippendale balustrade on both its first and second floor porches, an ornate central hallway with its two-tiered, side-set staircase, and numerous rooms with tongue-and-groove wood ceilings, horizontal tongue-and-groove wood paneling, and decorative mantelpieces, all of which are original to the house or were added during its period of significance.
The J. C. Richardson House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service on September 22, 2014.
