This house at 411 Bayard Street was built in the early 1800s although a builder's name and the date '1840' were found behind plaster. Woodwork throughout the house is circa 1840.

Thomas E. Ledbetter served as a minister to the Beaufort Methodist Mission, which was an attempt to evangelize slaves on the cotton and rice plantations.
