The Hale–Elmore–Seibels House or Seibels House is a historic building located in Columbia, South Carolina.[2][3] Records of the exact year of its construction were destroyed in 1865 during the burning of the city by Union soldiers serving under General William Tecumseh Sherman, the best guess for the date of construction stems from a purported "1796" carved into a beam in the basement. Much of the early history of the house is uncertain, but it is thought to be the oldest building in Columbia.[4]

Located at 1601 Richland Street, the house is the headquarters of the Historic Columbia Foundation, and is open to the public as a museum, its extensive restored garden serves as the backdrop for wedding receptions and other events.
