When Confederate General James Chesnut built this house (c.1854), its then remote location from the town inspired him to name it "Kamschatka" (colloquial spelling) for one of the northernmost points in Siberia. He and his wife, Mary Boykin Chesnut, left this home when he was elected to the US Senate in 1858. This home was later owned by the William F. Buckley family. Private Residence.
