Orange Grove, also known as the Gaillard-Colclough House, is an historic 39.9-acre (161,000 m2) plantation and its plantation house located at Gaillard's Crossroads, (intersection of Peach Orchard Road and Black River Road), north of Dalzell, South Carolina.[2][3] It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on 19 August 1993.[1]

Built in 1851 in a South Carolina Lowcountry vernacular style of architecture, the house was seriously damaged by a tornado on 30 April 1924, and was rebuilt thereafter so that it now appears as a "raised cottage with a Prairie or Craftsman roof."[2][3]

The main axis of the plantation house runs NW-SE, with the façade on the SE face.[4]
