Cope Depot – Orangeburg County, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Orangeburg County Photos  |  Cope Depot

The small town of Cope was named after Jacob Martin Cope, who sold a piece of his farmland for a town and train depot in the 1890s. The Cope Depot was built in 1894 for the Manchester & Augusta Railroad, and was later used by the Atlantic Coast Line.

The tracks are still in use, but the depot ceased operations in the 1960s. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is still considered the center of town, where locals can meet and visit.

SCIWAY thanks Ann Helms of Spartanburg for this great historical information and picture she took in 2010.

Cope Depot – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Cope Depot, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
