HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A piece of history, a house that has sat on William Hilton Parkway on Hilton Head Island for decades was re-dedicated to the fmaily that has owned the house since it was built.

According to the Stuart family, the house was built in the early 1900s, and passed down through the family for generations. The late Henry Stuart and his wife Albertha inherited the house in the 1940s when he moved back to the island from New York.

The two raised their four daughters in the house. When Henry passed away, Albertha stayed in the house, up until it started to fall a apart. She moved in with her daughter.

But now, thanks to the South Carolina's Housing Authority and the wonderful volunteers at the Hilton Head Regional Habitat for Humanity, she's back home.

Albertha is excited to be back. The family said the house has come full circle, and it will be around for many more years to come.
