Gaston Livery Stable Guided Tours

December 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Built in 1893, Gaston Livery Stable is a former full-service livery stable. Significant for its role in the city’s turn-of-the-century transportation industry, it is also important to equine and agricultural history. The property is identified with the family of D.W. Gaston, Sr., who acquired the property in 1909. He operated the livery with his son, D.W. Gaston, Jr., until 1932. The business provided important services for year-round Aiken residents and members of the Winter Colony.

Architecturally, the building is a notable example of barn design and construction. It is a two-and-a-half story, 10,000 square foot, all brick, U-shaped livery stable. The design is Eclectic Victorian with a symmetrical floorplan and a one-story Porte-cochere.

Gaston Livery Stable is open for tours the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 10am to 1pm or by appointment.
