Camden's oldest (c.1830) business/residential landmark, is a wonderful example of the Georgian-style structure of the Federal period. Susan Price, an African American, bought the building in the early 1900s. The downstairs housed a community store while the family lived in the upstairs apartment. It also served, for a period of time, as a boarding home for female students at nearby Mather (Boylan-Haven-Mather) Academy. The only known example of a 19th century store/residence in central South Carolina, the house is a part of Camden's National Register District. Tours provided.
