Also see . . . Hale–Elmore–Seibels House (Wikipedia). The best guess for the date of construction stems from a purported "1796" carved into a beam in the basement. Much of the early history of the house is uncertain, but it is thought to be the oldest building in Columbia. (Submitted on June 9, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
