1. The Bishop Davis House Marker
Inscription. This Charleston Single House was built about 1817 by William Daniel(B. 1775 ~ D. 1828), a planter and owner of farm property at White Oak Creek about halfway between Camden and Liberty Hill. His vault type tomb is located there. In 1837 the house was sold to Chapman Levy, a prominent attorney, who served in both the State House of Representatives and the Senate. In 1854, the house was sold to Reverend T. F. Davis, who was Rector of Grace Episcopal Church and later Bishop and Founder of Camden Episcopal Seminary. The Davis family continued to own the house for the next half century and it is commonly known as The Bishop Davis House. This brick house is a rare surviving example of the Adam Period in Camden.
