Farmers Hall. Pendleton, SC.


I believe that's Farmers' Hall in Pendleton, SC, home (fittingly enough) to the Pendleton Farmers' Society. Completed in 1828, it was the first permanent farmer's society hall in the United States. John C. Calhoun was the Society's president in the late 1830s and, in the 1860s, Thomas Clemson first discussed the founding Clemson College with its members. Today it is apparently home to the restaurant "1826 on the Green," serving "a mix of creole, low country and Mediterranean cuisines."

Jason and Owen, you are both correct. I have no idea how you identify this so quickly. Congratulations!
