Located on the historic Horseshoe, the McCutchen House was built in 1813 as the second faculty residence on the South Carolina College campus. Professor George McCutchen, for whom the building is named, lived in the house with his family from 1915 until World War II. Extensively renovated in the 1970s, the building housed a private dining club for faculty and administrative staff for many years.


Today, the McCutchen House is open to the public and is operated by the School of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management.  Under the close supervision of the director and professional chefs, HRTM students prepare and serve a gourmet lunch buffet, which is open to the public during the fall and spring semesters. The McCutchen House also offers services for private or professional events.
