The C.P. Quattlebaum Office is a historic law office building located at Conway in Horry County, South Carolina.[2] It was built about 1860 as a residence. It was used as a law office for the firm Johnson, Johnson, and Quattlebaum after 1876 until 1929. It also housed the first bank in town; The Bank of Conway, from 1893 until 1899. It was moved to its present location about 1900.[3]

It is a rectangular, front gable roofed, one-room wide and two-room deep weatherboard-clad building. The façade features a three bay, hipped roof porch supported by square posts. Its owner, Cephas Perry Quattlebaum, served as Conway's first mayor and his residence is located nearby, the C.P. Quattlebaum House.[3] The building is now used as the Conway Visitor's Center.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
