Bordeaux Hall – McCormick, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | McCormick County Photos | Bordeaux Hall
Bordeaux Hall, also known as the Dr. John Albert Gibert Home, is located in the small town of McCormick. Dr. Gibert was the grandson of Pierre Gibert, an early leader of the French Huguenot colony of New Bordeaux.
Construction on Bordeaux Hall began in 1859 but was interrupted by the Civil War and not completed until 1867. The home was designed and constructed in the classic Greek Revival style by architect William Henry Jones of Atlanta, who also designed Ivy Gates Plantation, Lower Long Cane Presbyterian Church, and several other historic buildings located in McCormick County.
