Warren Farm

This boarded-up farmhouse in the rural Colleton County town of Williams was built by Colonel George Warren in 1842. The town initially was called Buck Head. Yet by the end of the nineteenth century it became known as Williams for Tom Williams, Colonel Warren’s brother-in-law, who donated land for a church and became the town’s first Post Master in 1895.

A descendant of Colonel Warren, J.L.B. Warren, was once the editor of the local newspaper, The Press and Standard. He published a book on nearby Walterboro in 1939 titled, Little Pieces on Doings in the Nineties.

Reflections on Warren Farm

Brandon Coffey says “The first time I ever came across this magnificent house I had been traveling a new route between St. George and the Donnelly WMA. I had spent the day shooting wildlife and was starting to feel tired as the sun was setting. Driving along that old country road I happened to glance left just as the sun was setting and making the old worn windows of this farmhouse glow as if it were alive. Immediately I slammed on brakes and flipped around, i had to shoot this house! The way the sun filled the home filled it with an energy that was exciting to see. Ever since that chance encounter this has been a favorite spot of mine to revisit from time to time.”

The first Warren was George Warren and his wife was Elizabeth. He was born in England and died after 1800. To give a time frame: George's son was Daniel Warren, Sr. born in 1765 (wife, Martha). Daniel died after 1840. Not sure where this George fits in.

In regards to the Warren Farm house & family cemetary. Does anyone know what went on inside of the house?? That house attracts a lot of bored teenagers looking for ghosts, I've been there a few times myself & it is super creepy….

My great grandparents lived there with his family late 1890s until his death in the 1970s. Hebert and Eva Pringle. The owner who owned the property back then let them stay rent free. The owner told my great grand father that the place had ghosts and I have heard a lot of stories of strange things happening apparitions, dragging, talking, walking, slamming, piano playing etc. My grand aunts and uncles, my mother and her cousin’s had stories for days of being terrified by the things that occupied that house. I’m curious as well as to the history and what happened here.

Does anyone know anything about the actual history of this house, besides who built it & lived there?? This house has been an attraction for bored teenagers, looking for ghosts. I've been several times, myself in the past and it is a very spooky house…
