AT&T Building – Denmark, South Carolina

This building in Denmark, now serving as an antique shop, has an interesting history.

The historical marker reads: “AT&T Building – This Georgian Revival building, completed in 1923, at the cost of $300,000, was the third Denmark office of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company. In 1898, long-distance lines from Virginia to Georgia, and from Alabama to Charleston crossed here, making Denmark an excellent choice for a switching station. This building, described as ‘the most modern telephone plant in the south’ when it opened, carried calls from New York to Florida, and Alabama to the East Coast, for many years.”

Mike writes: “During WWII, the AT&T building, and nearby train depot were guarded by soldiers from Fort Stewart, Georgia. This building was an important link in the nation’s communications, and was considered a prime target for sabotage. This historic building is now a home to an antiques store on Carolina Highway, US 321. Kind of fitting for the times. I worked for 40 years in the telephone business, with and for AT&T, in buildings just like this, never thinking of the historical aspect.”
