Long Description:

The W.H. Winborne House, constructed ca. 1925, is a brick one-and-one half story, rectangular plan, cross-gable roofed bungalow-craftsman style residence. It features built in cabinet work, decorative mantels, and interior and exterior furniture made by W.H. Winborne, a woodworking and furniture craftsman who owned and operated a lumber company in Conway. The façade is dominated by a broad peaked gable with knee-braces over an integral porch which wraps three elevations. Tapering, paired, square posts have brick-pier bases and slot balustrades. The paired porch posts support a horizontal board entablature. The gable end is shingle-sheathed and ahs the tripartite window motif as in the façade gable. Wallace Henry Winborne came to Conway in 1906 from North Carolina and worked with the Burroughs Lumber Company, which he subsequently purchased and named the W.H. Winborne Lumber Company. He built this residence ca. 1925, about the time of his retirement and lived here until his death in 1947. The house is one of the finest bungalow style residences in Conway. Winborne also designed Conway’s town clock, completed in 1939 and built from local cypress. Listed in the National Register August 5, 1986. ~ South Carolina Department of Archives and History website
