Willcox's Inn in Aiken, South Carolina
. The inn was an internationally known hostelry during the heyday in the 1930s and beyond, when Aiken was known as the "Winter Colony," when Aiken was a wintering spot for the wealthy of the snowy American Northeast. Suddenly a sleepy southern town was introduced to polo grounds, hunting lodges, and country clubs. Operated from 1898 to 1957 by members of the Willcox family, the building reflects the influence of both Second Empire and Colonial Revival styles of architecture. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2017.
