Heyward Singley House
Designed in 1950 by architect Heyward S. Singley (1902—1959) for his family, this house features an asymmetrical one-story entrance portico with a pedimented gable. The portico is supported by fluted pilasters and Roman Doric columns. Singley designed three houses in the Forest Hills neighborhood and was active and influential in the South Carolina architecture community. He served as chairman of the State Board of Architectural Examiners and as secretary and treasurer of the South Carolina chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Singley also designed the Columbia Central Fire Station and the Hartsville National Guard Armory.
