Buck's Upper Mill Farm, also known as Henry Buck House, is a historic home located at Bucksville in Horry County, South Carolina.[2] The house was built about 1838 and is a typical two-story, central hall, framed farmhouse, or "I"-House. The front façade features a full-length, one-story porch with a shed roof supported by six square posts. Also on the property are a one-story frame building constructed in the 19th century as a commissary for Buck’s lumber business, and the ruins of a sawmill (such as a round brick smokestack on a square base).[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
