Century House Marker – Ridgeway, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Fairfield County Photos  |  Century House Marker

This historic marker in front of the Century House describes the use of one of Ridgeway’s homes as a Confederate Headquarters during the Civil War. In February 1865, General Beauregard brought Wade Hampton’s cavalry to stay in Ridgeway, located just 20 miles north of Columbia. Union troops arrived within days, destroying the railroad and forcing Beauregard to nearby Winnsboro.

Jerolyn Carroll, Your 5x great-grandfather knew my 4x great-grandfather, John Rosborough. The Century House sits in the spot that the original Rosborough house sat. Some of the older Coleman children were born in the Rosborough House. James actually bought property from John’s son, James Thomas Rosborough, before he left for Texas.

This is the Coleman ancestral home, built by James Buchanan Coleman, son of Charles Coleman. James Buchanan Coleman was my 5th great-grandfather.
