"HARTLEY HOUSE" This house was built before 1800 for John Pearson Bond, according to local tradition. It later came into possession of John Bates of the family from whom Batesburg derives its name, and has been owned for over a century by Lodwick Hartley and his family. It was the first meeting place of the Batesville Masonic lodge and was a stagecoach mail stop.

Erected by Lexington County Historical Society - 1970
