Wilkins House

The Wilkins House originally stood where the Waterstone on Augusta was built. Rather than destroy this piece of Greenville’s heritage, the builder worked with the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation, the community, and a private buyer to move, save and preserve it.

The Italianate architecture is so unique that the house is now on the national register of historic places, despite being relocated and remodeled in the past.

Vardry Mill Wheel

This round stone is seen by the RiverPlace walkway under the Main Street bridge. More than just a stone, it is thought to be one of the grain grinding wheels from the original Vardry McBee grist mill back in the early 1800’s. Several years ago, it was retrieved from the bottom of the Reedy River and moved under the bridge.

This grand building on Townes Street has served as the home of several churches, starting with the Beth Israel Congregation in the early 1900s, and including the Grace Evangelical shown on the sign. It is now undergoing a massive ‘This Old House’ style renovation, which will preserve key building elements and end up as a residence.
