John Inglis House

About 25 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, this home, at 226 Third Street, was built. Possibly Cheraw's third oldest house, this was once the residence of John Inglis, chairman of the committee that drew up the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession and Chancellor of South Carolina during the War Between the States. Commonly called a "Charleston Box", the original home consisted of two rooms downstairs and two rooms upstairs with the only stairway being outside. A long hall leading to the kitchen and a wing to accommodate a doctor's office were added later. Many of the boards in the home are held together with large wooden pegs, and several windows still have hand-blown glass panes.
