Warren Farm — Williams, South Carolina
SC Picture Project | Colleton County | 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.”
