Richard Tutt HouseThe Tutt house which formerly stood on this site is believed to have been the first home at Edgefield Court House. Richard Tutt was one of the party who in October 1775 arrested Tory leader Robert Cunningham and escorted him to Charleston. Later, as a lieutenant in the 5th S.C. Continentals, he served at Fort Rutledge. In the Siege of Ninety Six, he is said to have worked on the tunnel the patriots projected under Star Fort.

Among the seven graves are those of Lieutenant Richard Tutt, born in Culpepper County, Virginia, 1749, died in Edgefield, 1807, and his son-in-law, Matthew Mims (1780-1848), clerk of court, 1814. Richard Tutt settled near Liberty Hill before the Revolution and later served in Edgefield as village surgeon and justice of the peace.
