Tanglewood Mansion – Pendleton, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Anderson County Photos  |  Tanglewood Mansion

Tanglewood Mansion in Pendleton was once a prime example of an upcountry-style plantation home. The first home was built in the 1830s, and by the 1860 John Baylis Earle Sloan and his wife, Mollie, had established Tabglewood. Sadly, the home burned in 1908, leaving the ruins of the portico columns.

The home was rebuilt two years later, incorporating the remaining columns into the new structure. It remained in the Sloan family until the 1950s and then burned again in 1970. In 2004 the owners of the Tanglewood Mansion sold their property to the Anderson County Library System, and the Pendleton branch of the Anderson County library now sits next to the mansion’s ruins.

There was a structure in this vicinity ca. 1835 that was, in all probability, Greek Revival–that is, would have had a tall columned facade or portico–but it wasn't a residence. It was a 'folly'– a pavilion on Thomas Pinckney's mill pond, built by the Stuarts and called The Temple of Friendship. It appears on several plats of the period and later.

As an historian, I'd very much appreciate learning where there is a structure recorded on this property at this location prior to 1856, when Floride Calhoun purchased Mrs. Wm Adger's Dunean property and sold this portion to John Baylis Earle Sloan. Can the author of this posting point me to the deed or plat book? Would help me with a larger project. Thank you.
