I think we found it

605 Laurel St, Conway SC

(#25 on Conway Historical house tour)
Causey House - Circa 1876.
For many years Coleman S. Causey, Captain of the riverboat Ruth, and his
wife, Miss Julia, one of the early milliners of the town, lived here.
This is atypical Greek Revival Cottage. (605 Laurel St.)

After a visit to the Conway Historical Museum and speaking with the folks there about the town, the historic tour of homes and the "live oak" tour we were stoked about one of the listings we found. It was an old house build in 1876 (or earlier) and was #25 of the 40 homes on the historic tour of homes in Conway. It was also within our budget. So we decided to see the property and made a return trip today (only 3 days after being in Conway last) to view the interior.

Well it was very quaint, needed some serious updating, but the "bones" were good. The following day we had a signed contract on the house.
