Linda Brown: A South Carolina Gem ...

Linda Brown is a true South Carolina gem! Not only does she send us beautiful photos of interesting places, but she includes historic details to accompany each picture. Her career as an editor and her interest in local history are evident in her submissions, which range from historic buildings in Williamsburg County to farms along the Grand Strand.

We are big fans of Linda's work and always enjoy hearing from her, as she shares countless stories and anecdotes, giving new life to structures that have been around for decades. But don't take it from us – go to the South Carolina Picture Project and enjoy Linda's photos and stories for yourself!

Linda in Her Own Words ...

ME IN MY OWN WORDS:  I've worked in county government, been a legal assistant and edited a weekly newspaper. I've edited two books: Remembering Kingstree: The Collected Writings of Bessie Swann Britton and Kingstree Tales of Long Ago: Further Writings of Bessie Swann Britton. I've also prepared a photo book, Kingstree Then and Now, for the Williamsburgh Historical Society, where I've served on the board.

MY SC CLAIMS TO FAME:  My great-great grandfather, John Brown, built the house that is an integral part of the Browntown Museum in Florence County.
