Cross Keys Plantation House

Cross Keys Plantation

The Cross Keys Plantation wasn’t on our list of potential stops on our recent mid-state driving tour. However, we made a quick u-turn to check out this unexpected sight.

The property is owned by the Union County Museum but wasn’t open so I only took images from the road. The white plaque at the gable peak has the build date of 1812 along with two crossed skeleton keys.

The other end of the house has just one chimney, partly hidden by a tree.

The intricate brick work is fascinating, especially in the chimney.

The bricks varied in colors and the top several rows on the front of the house appear to be of a different era.
