This home in historic Georgetown is one of the city’s oldest. Built in 1740 by Robert Stewart, the august house originally was Georgian in style with a brick exterior. It wasn’t until wealthy merchant Daniel Tucker purchased the estate in 1787, following Stewart’s death, that the house was transformed into the Federal-style, stuccoed manse that it is today. Tucker also was responsible for adding the rounded rooms to either side of the home. It is believed that George Washington stayed here on his 1791 tour.

Benjamin Allston, Sr. purchased the home after 1825, and by the twentieth century it was owned by the Parker family. In 1979 the Parkers sold the property to First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Georgetown, which later became Carolina First. The bank then donated it to the Parker-Stewart Foundation in 2001. The organization leased the building to the City of Georgetown the following year.

Since 2006 the estate has been owned by the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of South Carolina and is used as offices and an event site. Facing the Sampit River, the location of the Stewart-Parker House makes it a popular venue for weddings and other formal gatherings. The property is also part of the Kaminski House Museum.

The Stewart-Parker House is listed in the National Register as part of the Georgetown Historic District as the Robert Stewart House:

Third oldest city in South Carolina, Georgetown is significant historically, militarily, agriculturally and architecturally. Georgetown was laid out as a city in 1729. In 1735 Georgetown was conveyed to three trustees. A plan of the city was attached to the deed and was the first plan to be preserved. Included in the plan were 174.5 acres for the town and 100 acres for a commons. The town acreage was divided into blocks by five streets running at right angles to the river. Much physical evidence of the past remains. The oldest existing structure in Georgetown is a dwelling which dates from ca. 1737. There are approximately twenty-eight additional 18th century structures as well as eighteen buildings erected during the 19th century prior to the Civil War. The existing structures—homes, churches, public buildings—are of both historical and architectural significance and are situated on heavily shaded, wide streets. The architecture ranges from the simplicity of early colonial, or Georgian, to the elaborate rice plantation era, such as Classical Revival.
