Laurens County Courthouse – Laurens, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Laurens County Photos | Laurens County Courthouse
The Laurens County courthouse, located in downtown Laurens, is on the National Register as an example of Greek revival architecture. The central portion was finished in 1838, with the wings added in 1858. The courthouse is surrounded by historic buildings that make up the town’s city square, which includes restaurants, antique shops, and a neat little movie theater with a wooden floor.
Photographer Lyn Freeman says that she was born and raised in Laurens, but had to move away periodically with her father who was in the military. “I always felt at home once I took a spin around the square to see if everything was the same as I left it. The courthouse was comforting to me because it always was the same even when some stores had changed.”
