Long Description:

This house was constructed in 1910 for Joseph William Holliday, Jr., and is a two-story, rectangular, side-gable, frame, weatherboard-clad residence, dominated by a pedimented Beaux Arts style portico with giant paired Ionic columns. The home reflects turn of the century Neo-Classical and Queen Anne stylistic influences as well. A small cameo window adorns the façade’s pedimented gable. Two interior, ridgeline, corbeled brick chimneys pierce the roofline. The interior has an unusual architectural screen which separates the foyer and a dogleg staircase. Ionic columns support a spool-and-spindle motif entablature, which features a central carved “H.” The J.W. Holliday, Jr. House is significant as Conway’s only extant example of Beaux Arts influenced architecture as well as for its association with J.W. Holliday, Jr., a prominent local farmer. Joseph William Holliday, Jr. was the son of local tobacco merchant J.W. Holliday, who introduced tobacco into Horry County at Galivants Ferry. The son was an 1893 graduate of the Citadel and moved to Conway soon after leaving the academy. He became a leading tobacco grower, farming large tracts in Florence, Georgetown, and Williamsburg Counties. Listed in the National Register August 5, 1986. ~ South Carolina Department of Archives and History website
