A New Lease on Life: Restoring Spartanburg’s Duncan DuPre House

D onor generosity touches every corner of the VCOM community. Thanks to the generosity of many, the renovation of the historic Duncan DuPre House on the VCOM-Carolinas campus was completed this past year. VCOM has received more than $500,000 in gifts to help with the restoration of this iconic Spartanburg home. A celebration dinner was held last year to recognize donors. “We are very grateful for everyone who has joined us thus far with their gifts,” said Dr. Matt Cannon, DO, dean for the Carolinas campus. “Because of the DuPre House’s significance to the Spartanburg community, VCOM also committed substantial institutional funds to restore the building and refurnish it. We now are committed to raising additional funds that will create a permanent endowment to provide for future maintenance.” Dr. Cannon recently reflected upon the renovations to the DuPre House. “In recent years, we’ve seen many historic buildings across the area fall into disrepair and be torn down,” he said. “In Spartanburg, it is really exciting to see a place like the DuPre House take on new life. The home’s restoration will allow VCOM to use the space for College events and various community gatherings.” For more information about how you can support the DuPre House endowment, please contact Tammy Whaley at
