Abbeville County Courthouse – Abbeville, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Abbeville County Photos | Abbeville County Courthouse
The Abbeville County Courthouse was designed by the Atlanta architectural firm of Edwards, Walter, and Parnham in the 1900s, and has always served as the center of government in Abbeville. Each Election Day men and women gather here to renew old friendships and to discuss election results and current events.
Photographer Kelly Harvey says that “we were on a trip to an area state park and traveled to Abbeville for the day to do some shopping and have lunch. We ended up returning that evening for dinner. This was my first trip to Abbeville and thought the downtown area had a great vintage shopping area and both restaurants were wonderful. I just saw the clock in front of the courthouse and thought it made a great photo!”
Mark Clark says that he “remembers accompanying my father to vote when I was only six years old. Some of the older kids had climbed up on the courthouse columns to play. Not being old enough to vote or care about it, I decided to join the other kids on the columns.
“I lost my balance and fell off of the second column from the left, breaking my left arm. Thereafter I just contented myself to the less exciting act of voting when I became old enough to do so.”
