Old Oak Tree – Laurens County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Laurens County Photos | Old Oak Tree
This old oak tree sets a striking scene near an abandoned barn in rural Laurens County. Laurens County is named for Revolutionary War leader Henry Laurens. When the county was established in 1785, its residents were predominantly Scotch-Irish and English immigrants. Many were still loyal to England during the American Revolution, and the county was the scene of a few revolutionary battles.

Ed Long of Laurens took this picture in September 2008. He says that he was “riding through the county and saw this photo opportunity, took it in color and decided it made a better black and white photo.”
