Wentworth Mansion


Wentworth Mansion, in Charleston, SC, was originally the private residence of Francis Silas Rodgers, his wife Marie Elizabeth Evans Cochran, and their 13 children. It was built in the mid-19th Centuryand designed by the noted architect Daniel G. Waynes, . In 1920, members of the Rodgers' family sold the home to the Scottish Rite Cathedral Association for $100,000. The Scottish Rite Masons kept the home until 1940 when they sold it to The Atlantic Coast Insurance Company who used it as their office headquarters until 1996. 1997, current proprietor Richard Widman purchased The Wentworth Mansion and began an extensive $7 million renovation that preserved historic features including the inlaid floors, original staircase, and Tiffany glass. He also added modern conveniences and luxurious bathrooms transforming the home into a one-of-a-kind historic hotel experience.
