Brushy Creek, also known as Vardry McBee House and Alexander McBee House, is a historic home located at Greenville, South Carolina. It was built about 1836 as a 1 1/2-story, frame farmhouse. In 1924, the house was expanded with the addition of a one-story frame room, that incorporated the formerly separate kitchen into the house itself. Further renovations were made in 1938–1939 and 1951. Also on the property are a log barn, a brick shed, a well house, and the ruins of a grist mill. It was the home of Vardry McBee (1775–1864), prominent 19th-century businessman, entrepreneur, and delegate to the Secession Convention of Greenville District known as the “Father of Greenville,” and his son Alexander McBee (1822–1897), prominent 19th-century businessman, banker, and state representative of Greenville District.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.
