Jefferson Davis Park – Abbeville, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Abbeville County Photos  |  Jefferson Davis Park

Jefferson Davis Park is a public park located next to the Burt-Stark Mansion in Abbeville. A large, Queen Anne-style house owned by Dr. George Rosenberg once stood on the property. The house was demolished after being purchased by the City of Abbeville during the 1970s.

The park is named for Confederate President Jefferson Davis, who is said to have held his last cabinet meeting in the Burt-Stark Mansion prior to being captured by Federal troops near Washington, Georgia, in the final days of the Civil War.

The small white building in the background of this photo was used as a kitchen for the Burt-Stark mansion. It contains a wood-fired brick oven that dates back to the 1830s when the house was built by David Lesley.

SCIWAY thanks Mark Clark, an Abbeville native currently residing in Winnsboro, for submitting this picture and historical information.

We lived in the Rosenberg house for a year when I was in elementary school while our farm house was being built. It was an amazing house, there was a room on the second floor that was round with a column in the middle. My brothers and I spent many hours playing there. It was a real shame that this beautiful home was torn down. I hope you will post pictures of it on this site.
