Additional Information

Built in the 1850’s, the Chesnut Cottage was home to Mary Boykin Chesnut and her husband, General James Chesnut. Mrs. Chesnut, a woman of wit and high intelligence, knew intimately the leading men and women of her day. She herself was a daughter of one of the finest families of the South and her husband was before the war a United State Senator.

​While the façade of Columbia has changed drastically since the 1850’s, the Chesnut Cottage still stands strong on Hampton Street and invites guests of all ages to enjoy.
