Built in 1765, the house was later the home to a prosperous merchant who constructed the warehouse across the street along with a dock for merchant ships and also belonged to Dr. Charles Fyffe, a Scottish physician and charter member of the Winyah Indigo Society. A British Loyalist, Dr. Fyffe saw his property confiscated during the Revolutionary War. From there the house passed through several hands until its purchase by Herbert G. Tarbox in 1936.
The Georgian-style mansion, which has original floors of heart pine and eight fireplaces, underwent an extensive and immaculate restoration in the 1990s.
