Located in Eutawille, South Carolina, the house named Loch Dhu stands. It was finished around 1812 to 1816 near Lake Marion.

According to some experts, Loch Dhu may have been built for the planter Robert J. Kirk. It is, however, recorded, that it was inherited by Philip C. Kirk, Robert?s son, and a former South Carolina General Assembly member and Confederate Army surgeon. It got its name from the Scottish Gaelic translation of the phrase, ?black lake?, as the estate has a dark pond around its area. The house served as a Confederate hospital during the Civil War.

Loch Dhu was put into danger when the Lake Marion was created. Luckily, it is placed on top of a hill, so it was saved from the gruesome fate that befell its neighbours. It still stands in its original location today.
