This building, constructed in 1905, was the law office of "Colonel" Robert Thompson Jaynes from 1905 until he retired in 1950.

"Colonel Bob" began his practice of law in 1885. His most notable case was Hopkins vs. Clemson College, a case which he argued and won before the United States Supreme Court in 1911. This landmark legal decision redefined the relationship of the states with their state supported colleges and has been cited in related legal proceedings ever since.

Coincidentally, the ruling in this case helped protect the former site of Seneca Town, a Cherokee village on Seneca River.
