Caleb Coker House – Society Hill, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Darlington County Photos | Caleb Coker House
This clapboard house in the Darlington County community of Society Hill was built in 1832 by Caleb Coker, father of Major James Lide Coker. Major Coker, who grew up in this home, was an influential leader in the Pee Dee region. A businessman, Civil War veteran, and founder of Coker College, he also led Sonoco – the region’s leading industry – founded by his father, Charles W. Coker.
The home looks much different today than it does in this 2006 photo; in May of 2012, the home came to the attention of the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation. That same year Dr. Ernest Helms received the Governor’s Award from the foundation for his lifetime achievement of saving and restoring historically significant homes, the Caleb Coker House included.
