Karle Place – Lexington, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Lexington County Photos  |  Karle Place

The Karle Place in Lexington was built in 1850 by Margaret Corley Harmon. The German spelling of “Karle” was likely changed by a census taker into Corley, a name that can still be seen on streets and buildings in and around Lexington today.

The Harmon family name is also still quite prominent around the county. The home was originally much larger, but was cut in half in the 1950s. This part remains on the original site, while the other half is located on North Lake Drive.

The house has remained in the Corley and Harmon families, although it was briefly owned by Senator Strom Thurmond. It was restored in 1994 by Mr. and Mrs. Charles D. Corley.

SCIWAY thanks frequent contributor Ann Helms for this great information and picture she took in 2009.
