Description

Located in a picturesque setting of rolling hills, rich farmland, and lush forests, Chester County belongs to one of South Carolina's most historic regions: the Olde English District. From its role in the Revolutionary War to its present position in Palmetto politics, culture, and commerce, Chester County has played a vital role in the direction and development of South Carolina over the years. Celebrating the Chester County of yesteryear, this volume, using over 200 vintage black-and-white photographs, explores the county's history and geography, from its rural backroads to the bustling streets of downtown Chester. Chester County provides a rare opportunity for readers to experience the everyday life of previous generations, showcasing their places of worship, their early business ventures, and their residences. Roaming the countryside of decades past, through a landscape of bountiful cotton and turn-of-the-century textile mills, readers of all ages will discover their hometowns anew, meeting common and prominent citizens, such as veterans, teachers, farmers, mayors, businessmen, and other civic leaders. These images and their stories recall a simpler time and preserve for future generations visions of Chester County's unique past.

Author Biography

Authors Glinda Price Coleman and Gina Price White have compiled a wonderful visual tribute to the people and history of Chester County. Appealing to both longtime residents and newcomers to this county along the Catawba River, Chester County will be a valued addition and nostalgic treasure to any reader's personal library.
