Joseph L. Nettles House
This 1930 Craftsman-style house was designed by architects Lafaye & Lafaye for prominent Columbia attorney Joseph Lawrence Nettles (1890—1941) and his wife, Harriett Gillespie Nettles (1895—1951). The two-story house has a brick veneer first story with a stucco second story. Nettles, a South Carolina native, moved to Columbia after attaining a law degree from Harvard University. At the time of his death in 1941, he was the president of the State Bar Association.
