Koger/Carroll House

The Sunday April 14, 2002, Charleston, SC newspaper, "The Post and Courier " has an article about the Koger House near Grover, SC in Dorchestor County. The Koger House has been named one of the most 11 Most Endangered Properties in South Carolina by the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation.

The house was built in the late 1700's, early 1800's and took 17 years to complete. Joseph Koger III sold the home to James Carroll before leaving for Mississippi. The article makes it sound like the house is on its last legs and will either collapse or have to be torn down.

Current owner is Fitzhugh Sweatman. Also, involved in saving the house are Grover historian Peggy Phalen and St. George mayor David Sojurner. If money is found towards preserving the house the intention is to turn it into a living history museum.

The article was written by Bo Peterson who covers Dorechestor County for "The Post and Courier." His email address is Phone number is 843 745 5852
