Pickett-Fischel House-Chester, South Carolina

Built in 1858 by George and Joseph Pickett, this property is a contributing property to the Chester Historic District. Notes about the house on the South Carolina Department of Archives and History state the Fischel family owned it for six generations starting in 1960. I believe this to be a typo because the Fischel family was living at the address in 1900.

Wachtel House-Chester, South Carolina

This Queen Anne Victorian was built in the mid-1880s. Meyer Wachtel was a dry goods merchant who moved to the United States from Germany. His son, Manning, stayed in Chester after his parents passed away and became a dry goods merchant. I was not able to confirm if he took over a family business.
