Wells Fargo Building Tours

Now a private residence, the Wells Fargo Building was built in the late 1800s by respected Jewish businessman and Abbeville resident, Isaac Wise. At the turn of the century, the Wells Fargo Company & Express occupied the building for several years before it was purchased by the Steen family to be used as a machine shop then a storage facility for Steen’s Syrup Company. The building, currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is constructed by locally made brick and features walls that are 14 inches thick, 13-foot ceilings and the original cypress entrance doors. While touring the home, visitors will be able to view the beautiful antiques and artwork that adorn this elegantly decorated home and listen to the antique music boxes that are on display. Tours are available for $15 per person.
