James Clement Furman, the University's first president, purchased Cherrydale from George W. Green in 1857. Probably built in the 1840s, the farmhouse was Furman's summer home until 1881 and his residence until his death in 1891. In 1939 Eugene E. Stone III purchased the house from Furman's descendants. AIG Baker acquired it in 1999 and donated it to the University.

In March 1999 Cherrydale was moved to campus from its original site on Poinsett Highway. Furman University is grateful to the friends who contributed to making this historic building a place for alumni to call home.
