This home in downtown St. Matthews was inspired by exhibits from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It was built in 1907 for Edward Wimberly; he died of pneumonia shortly after his elegant home was completed. In 1893 Wimberly married Mary Elizabeth Banks. Along with his brother-in-law, J.A. Banks – who served St. Matthews as mayor and South Carolina as both state representative and state senator – he established a popular store. The business, Banks-Wimberly, was very successful and was said to be the “largest business of any store between Columbia and Charleston.”

Wimberly was also involved in community affairs. At the time of his death, he was campaigning for the formation of Calhoun County; the county was formed in 1908 – shortly after Wimberly’s death – from portions of Lexington County and Orangeburg County.
