Cyril O. Spann
Columbia doctor's office nominated to National Register has Chester roots

A doctor’s office that was built to serve the African American community in the Waverly community in Columbia that has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places has some Chester roots.

The building was built in 1963 and is located in the same area as the former Good Samaritan-Waverly Hospital which served the black community in Columbia from 1952 until it closed in 1973.

The office, the Cyril O. Spann Medical Building, was built by Dr. Cyril Spann, a native of Chester.
