At the edge of the Piedmont region of South Carolina lies the small town of Clinton. A town built upon nurturingothers, Clinton boasts a picturesque village and countryside inhabited by warm-hearted residents. Beginning as little more than an intersection of highways, Clinton has become the home to institutions such as the Thornwell Home for Children, Presbyterian College, and the Presbyterian Home. The small-town charm and quaint beauty that once attracted the town founders still permeates throughout.In this attractive volume of vintage photographs, readers will visit the Clinton of yesteryear, experiencing the area as it was when the earliest visitors and settlers came, including Christian followers of several denominations, railroad travelers en route between Laurens and Newberry, and historical figures such as William Plumer Jacobs, founder of both the orphanage and the college. Covering Clinton's history from its beginnings in the 1800s to its presence in the new millennium, this visual history touches upon aspects of everyday life, the remaining and the lost architectural treasures, and the social activities of the decades.
