Description

The Lafayette House in Cheraw is in the Adam style, an adaptation of the early Classical Revival. Built in 1823 by Dr. William Ellerbe, it was the site of a public reception for the Revolutionary War hero General Marquis de Lafayette on his return visit to the United States in 1825. It was later remodeled in 1852.
