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.
