Joye Cottage is one of the oldest, and largest, of Aiken’s winter retreats.[2][3] Most of the sprawling property dates to 1897, when William Collins Whitney purchased the property and remodeled it extensively.[4] It now includes a main house, a stable, a greenhouse, a laundry house, a couple of one-story cottages, and a squash court. The property, which is located in Aiken, South Carolina, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on September 29, 1980.[1]
