The Goodwill Estate, a landmark property listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1986, is up for sale in Richland County, near Eastover, with an asking price of $17.5 million. The estate is spread over 730 acres and surrounded by 3,600 acres of preserved land.

Established in 1795, the property features two primary residences, including a main house with intricate details like hand-molded bricks and an antique French crystal chandelier. Fun fact: For a time, it became a retreat for PT Barnum’s circus animals.

Additional structures include a grist mill, sawmill, hunting lodge, and a private museum in the Heyward House. Currently owned by Larry Faulkenberry, the estate is marketed with the potential for subdivision into 22 lots, offering both conservation and development opportunities.
