Overview

Oconee County, South Carolina (Images Of America Series) by Piper Peters Aheron


Oconee County, nestled in the foothills of the Upstate, possesses a rich history intertwined with its geography, which extends from the fertile Cherokee lands along the waters of the Tugaloo to

the mountain forests of the churning Chattooga River. Equal to the challenges of the region's harsh

yet beautiful terrain, the people of Oconee County

entered the 20th century with an agrarian economy

established by Revolutionary War veterans, cultivated

by German settlers, brutalized by the events from the

Civil War, and advanced in part by educators from the county's military institute, Clemson College.

About the Author


In this unique compilation, Oconee native Piper Peters Aheron incorporates photographs from local groups and families with seldom-seen images from the archives of the Oconee County Library, the Clemson University Library, and the South Caroliniana Library to create a fascinating look at the optimism and the hardships, the architecture and the landscape of rural, communal life from Brasstown to Stamp Creek, from Mountain Rest to Madison, and from West Union to Newry and beyond. Oconee County offers a visual tour of yesteryear, an era of unpaved Main Streets, moonshine distilleries, and horse-drawn wagons. Whether a longtime resident or a newcomer to the area, every reader will be intrigued by the many changes the region has undergone over the last hundred years.
