Lone Star – Calhoun County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Calhoun County Photos | Lone Star
The original town of Lone Star in Calhoun County is just about gone. A few homes, a couple of brick buildings, and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad freight station are about all that remain.
The four buildings pictured below sit quietly now in what was once a thriving railroad community. The Atlantic Coast Line station, a general store, and two gas stations served the people who lived and worked here. Railroad tracks still go by, but trains pass through without stopping now.
The post office and other buildings were restored and moved to Santee on the site of the Lone Star BBQ restaurant. Today, Lone Star is an unincorporated part of Calhoun County.
