Many people who visit South Carolina to enjoy its coastal landscapes and picturesque beaches know Marion as a quaint, little town along their vacation's journey. However, Marion is more than just a pleasant stopover for tourists and passersby; it is a destination in its own rights—a special, historic community that has enjoyed a long and interesting past.In this volume of over 200 images, many collected from trunks in attics and private family photo albums throughout the community, you will take a visual tour of the Marion of yesteryear, when Main Street was simply an unpaved, dusty street lined with cotton bales, horses, wagons, and general stores; when the town was transforming from one-room schoolhouses into larger educational complexes; and when life seemed a little slower and a little simpler. Marion provides invaluable insight into the lifestyles of its citizens, showing their beautiful homes; their workplaces, such as the local banks, barber shops, and county courthouse; and a variety of spots where they went to relax and play, such as the local swimming pools, fishing holes, and ball fields.
