The James Phinney House has achieved significance at the local level under National Register Criterion C as an excellent example of a late antebellum Greek Revival raised cottage in Chester County, South Carolina. The period of significance for the house is 1856, the year of construction. The Phinney House qualifies under Criterion C as a fine example of the Greek Revival style as it was expressed in rural South Carolina in the mid-nineteenth century. It is also a rare example of the style within a local context. Construction methods used and interior details also exhibit outstanding craftsmanship from the period. Although the property experienced a time of benign neglect it has had very little alteration and is largely intact.
