The home of Judge Joseph N. Whitner, Anderson County's founding father, was located at the crest of this will. It stood until recent years when it was torn down. Judge Whitner was a South Carolina House of Representative from Pendleton District when the act dividing Pendleton District into Anderson and Pickens Counties was passed on December 20, 1826. He was the chief supporter of the bill and did most of the work involved in setting up Anderson County. In 1830 he was elected Anderson County's state senator and moved here from Pendleton in that year after purchasing the home of Moses Chamblee. The Whitner home was named Rose Hill because of the roses planted on the hill by Mrs. Whitner. Mr. Whitner was elected Solicitor of the Western Judicial District in 1835 and afterwards was appointed judge. In later years the house was used as a school, a country club, and as a private museum.
