History of this house?


Recommended Posts

Does anybody know the history of this house located on North Main? It's a great house, but seems much more Palm Beach than Greenville. The style of architecture seems a little out of place with it's surrounding neighborhood. Just curious what you guys knew.

That home was built in 1926 by Dr. William Simpson, who, with his half brother, William Henry Belk, operated Belk Simpson Department Store. The Spanish architectural style was popular in the 20's under the influence of the Florida construction boom.

Agreed, its a little tacky with the flamingos and all, but its a landmark nontheless.
