Tanglewood Mansion – Pendleton, South Carolina

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 Tanglewood. 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.

The above photo from 1910 shows Tanglewood shortly after it was rebuilt following the fire in 1908. It was sent by Jerry Sloan to local historian Nancy Tate Hellams. The owners of Tanglewood at the time of the 1970s burning says that people were illicitly inhabiting the home at the tome of the fire.

This home belonged to my great great grandfather. My mother stayed there some when she was a child. It was the family’s summer home. Their main residence was in Charleston, S.C. They owned the William Gibbes House at 64 South Battery that was in the family for just over four decades before it was sold to the widow of Washington Roebling who built the Brooklyn Bridge. My grandfather, Earle Sloan, grew up in the William Gibbes House, spent summers at Tanglewood (we have a very old 8×10 photograph of him as a baby in the arms of his nanny taken at their summer home) and he was born in his maternal grandfather’s home at 172 Rutledge Avenue, which is now Ashley Hall (Girl’s School in Charleston, S.C.).

We have not seen any, but we will contact you if we are able to locate any interior images or if another reader is able to provide some.

Do you know if there are any drawings of the layout of the house?

I was also wondering if there were any pictures of the inside before it burned.

Are there any pictures of it before it burned?

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.
