163 Old Buncombe Rd Union SC

Built from 1812 to 1814 by Barrum (Barham) Bobo, the Cross Keys House is one of the oldest and most significant homes in Union County and the entire Upstate of South Carolina.  The house was majestically located on a knoll at the intersection of two historic roads; the Old Buncombe Road (or Charleston Road) and Old Ninety-Six (also known as the Old Piedmont Stage Road).  Two old milestones indicating the distances to Union and Columbia remain in front of the house.  The house was a prosperous plantation that also provided a welcome stop for travelers.
