L. Blakely House-Laurens County, South Carolina

The Lewdy Blakely House is an I-House (plantation plain) built approximately in 1860. The columns and porch were added in the 1880s to give the Greek Revival details.

According to the 1860 Slave Census, Blakely enslaved five people. There were several extant structures I could see in the backyard. I do not know the provenance of the structures and was unable to get a decent photograph of them.

The window details are interesting. They remind me of arrows.
