The Beaty-Spivey House

This 1848 structure that overlooks Kingston Lake was the home of Thomas Beaty, a signer of the Ordinance of Seccession and his wife, Mary, who was one of the founding members of Kingston Presbyterian Church. The home was built by shipbuilders from Maine, who came to the Waccamaw for the lumber and turpentine industries. Interestingly, when Wade Hampton came to Conway to campaign for Governor, he stayed in this house.

The small white building in the lawn was once used to house a servant.
