The Ashley-Willis House is a unique example of Greek Revival architecture in South Carolina, as it features a wide-gable front porch which was an uncommon element for residences built in this style. It was probably built by a member of the Ashley family in 1833 and later owned by the Willis family, for whom the town is named. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004, the house is owned by a descendent of the Willis family who is in the process of renovating it.
