The house was originally constructed by Daniel Washington Biggs and his business partner in the late 1880s. They owned a large sawmill in the area and needed a place to board northern lumber buyers visiting their mill. It operated as a boarding house for several years before it was purchased by Dr. Henry Edwards and his wife Caroline "Carrie" Haselden Edwards. It was the first two-storied house in Latta.

Dr. and Mrs. Edwards raised their family here and the interior has been restored to reflect the d?cor during their time here. For the extended Edwards and Haselden families the home became a gathering place and was enjoyed by both sides of the Edwards family. For the convenience of his medical practice Dr. Edwards had his office constructed next door - now the Dillon County Museum.

The town of Latta purchased the house from the Dillon County Historical Society for $1 to save it from demolition. The Latta Revitalization Commission has since restored the house, and it is now available for functions and offers space for two offices. Members of the Friends of the Edwards House provide for its upkeep and continued improvements.
