South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Allendale County Photos  |  Manuel’s Grocery

For many years, Manuel’s “Grocery & Barber Shop” was the hub of a small agricultural community located in Allendale County near the railroad along SC 125 near Gailee Road.

Photographer Lamar Nix has this to say about the old store, which closed down some time back: “Today it is a pleasing landmark to passersby on the ‘Atomic Road’ (SR 125) between Allendale and Beech Island, punctuated by pretty wildflowers in the springtime. Maybe there will be a place again in commerce for this country store; at least we hope that it will not crumble from neglect and be lost to history.”

I can’t find anything on Marion. Is it on another site?

As kids we would ride our horses to Manuel’s Grocery for penny candy. Great memories here. There use to be a large oak tree on the right side and a couple of homes as well.

Love this section of photos. We always travel across rural roads in SC from Augusta to Walterboro to Beaufort each year. Seeing these photos makes me realize we need to take more time to stop and really see the scenery.
