W.D. Summer Store – Pomaria, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Newberry County Photos | W.D. Summer Store
This building served as the W.D. Summer Store and sat about a half mile from the Hope Station depot in the Newberry County town of Pomaria. Building general stores near train depots was a common strategy for merchants during the height of rail travel.
W.D. Summer found success as a merchant in Newberry County and even opened Newberry‘s first liquor store in 1935. It is said that the store sold $500 worth of alcohol during its opening day. Summer operated other stores around the county, including this one.
