"The President's House as an historic Horseshoe structure is well documented, but little has been written about its role as a home. Patricia Moore-Pastides enriches the building's history by documenting the memories and experiences of the families who lived there."—Elizabeth Cassidy West, university archivist, South Caroliniana Library, University of South Carolina
"At Home in the Heart of the Horseshoe gets to the essence of why historic houses matter. Patricia Moore-Pastides provides us not only with an incisive architectural and social history of the President's House, but through her words and deeds as First Lady, reveals what it truly means to make a house a home."—Margize Howell and Peter M. Kenny, co-presidents, Classical American Homes Preservation Trust
"The site of the President's House on the historic Horseshoe has been a faculty residence for more than two hundred years and home to the University's presidents since 1952. In this attractive publication, Patricia Moore-Pastides chronicles the many ways in which this venerable structure serves not just the University, but the greater South Carolina community."—Walter Edgar, author of South Carolina: A History
