Timeline

  • 1735 – Earliest known date of existence

  • 1800 – Original two-story portion of the house was constructed for Mrs. Hariott Horry and remained unoccupied for the first 70 years.

  • 1858 – House was bought and finally occupied by Stephen Duval Doar. According to Doar's great-grandson, Alexander Lucas Lofton, "The Doars lived at the plantation until it was sold in the late twenties to Mr. Shonnard. My mother lived at the Wedge only a short walk from Harrietta, and I walked from the Wedge to Harrietta many times as a young boy. The wings on the house were there at that time, and probably were built at the time my great grandfather purchased it or even earlier." The picture below was sent to us by A. Lucas Lofton and estimates the shot was taken sometime between 1915 and 1923.
