The Harriet Barber House, the home of Reverend Samuel Barber and his wife Harriet McPherson Barber, is significant for its association with the South Carolina Land Commission during the late nineteenth century. Samuel Barber purchased a 42.5 acre of land in Richland County, part of the tract known as the Hopkins Turn Out Tract at $5.00 per acre. The land on which the house is located has remained in the same family since May 24, 1872. It appears that it is the only existing house in Lower Richland County built on land that was purchased by former slaves who took advantage of this program. The property was officially entered in the National Register of Historic Places in April of 1986. The Harriet Barber House Restoration Project received the first $25,000 grant from the Richland County Conservation Commission in 2006.
