The Laurens County Museum Association, including members Libby Coats Rhodes, Elaine Martin, Julius Dunklin Bolt, and Kathryn Weathers Johnson, has compiled this pictorial retrospective to pay homage to Laurens County. They have culled postcards from local collections, libraries, museums, and family albums, and have written detailed descriptions of images from the early 1900s. This volume will delight longtime residents and newcomers alike, become a cherished keepsake, and assist the Laurens County Museum in preserving the rich history of Laurens County for future generations.
