We are currently in the process of moving and restoring the Arthur Barnwell House, c.1880, in Greer, South Carolina. The house was built to be the home of Arthur Barnwell, the president of Pelham Manufacturing Company, which operated the Pelham Mill. If you would like to read about the history of my house, you can go to the page I have written about it, The Arthur Barnwell House c. 1880.
Here is The Arthur Barnwell House’s website on the National Register, and the application for historic status. The house was added to the National Register in 1982, thanks to the hard work of its then owner, Lee Williams.
Here are some kind of rudimentary floor plans we came up with when we were getting The Arthur Barnwell House ready to move.
We will be using some of the rooms differently than they are designated on the floor plans, but they will give you a general idea!
This week we are in what will be the Billiards Room.
The Billiards Room is designated on the floor plan as the Secondary Parlor. This room has been used by several families as the family room. This room is directly ahead of the front door, through the Entrance Hall. Like the Back Parlor, directly opposite, it has a huge bay window and fireplace.
Since we have a Front Parlor and a Back Parlor, and because this room is way too far from the kitchen to be a dining room, this room will be used as a Billiards Room. My husband had a pool table growing up, and I always loved the pool table at my grandparents house growing up, and I think my kids and grandkids will love it, too.
Here is a view of my Pinterest Board with plans for this room:
