South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Saluda County Photos | Bonham House
The Bonham House, also called Flat Grove, was built in 1780 in Saluda and was owned by Sophie Smith Bonham. Her husband, James Bonham, fought in the Revolutionary War. Her son, James Butler Bonham, became a South Carolina hero for his brave battle at the Alamo.
Since James Bonham died at the Alamo, his younger brother Milledge Bonham inherited the house. Milledge Bonham was a South Carolina State Legislator, a United States Representative, a Civil War general, and governor of South Carolina.
