The Caleb Coker house, built ca. 1832, is a wonderful un-restored historic home in the heart of the Pee Dee region of South Carolina.  It was the home of Caleb Coker (1802~1869) and the birthplace of his son, Maj. James Lide Coker (1837~1918), who was a Confederate officer, industrialist, philanthropist, and founder of Coker College. Caleb Coker was a merchant, a director of the Cheraw & Darlington RR, librarian of the Society Hill Library Society, and a charter member of the Darlington Agricultural Society.

This house is being sold for the purposes of attracting a responsible owner who will renovate and create a home or business. It can be lived in, leased out, or invested in and sold for a profit. Preservation South is the owner and is South Carolina’s statewide non profit historic preservation organization whose mission is to preserve, protect, and advocate for the historic structures of South Carolina. Every year South Carolina loses great homes like this to neglect. Please share this opportunity to anyone you know who might be interested.
