Location of Williams House (Ulmer, South Carolina)[edit]

The coordinates given for Williams House (Ulmer, South Carolina) are nowhere near being correct. The NRHP form gives zone 17N, 480720E,3860680N, which converts to about 34.888333,-81.210997, but that is up near North Carolina when it is in a county bordering on Georgia. I suspect a major typo in the Northing coordinate, but can someone figure out the correct coordinates? Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 08:06, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Is 33.084913, -81.207035 correct? The nom form says it's in the vicinity of Ulmer, so I played around with the UTM until I got something close to that town. It looks like if you change the first 8 in the northing to a 6 (e.g. 17N,480720E,3660680N), you get near Ulmer. Then I just scanned around that vicinity using Google maps trying to find a structure whose layout and orientation matched the architectural drawing in the nom form and the pictures here. There aren't any street views of the structure, so I can't verify any farther than that.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 20:21, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
You are dead on! That matches the footprint in the NRHP form. Thanks. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 20:49, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
