1400 Cambridge Lane
A Floridian Influence
Built in 1938 for Dr. Samuel Edward Wheeler (1890–1957) and his wife, Dorothy Wood Wheeler (1895–1988), this Spanish Colonial Revival house features a stucco-over-frame construction. Mrs. Wheeler reportedly said that she chose the unusual architectural style because she loved Florida. This house stands out among its surroundings because of materials, as well as the arch motif seen in its windows and entrances. Dr. Wheeler practiced medicine in Columbia from 1915 until his death in 1957. He also served as the medical director of the South Carolina Red Cross Regional Board Center.
