Photographer John Kneece describes the redeveloped town square: “Recently with the help of local citizen’s groups and the federal government, the town square and main street, known as Russell Street, were refurbished. Aside from the brick street, heavy cast iron lamp posts, and granite curbing, much landscaping and decorating has taken place. In the same spirit, many of the downtown merchants have improved their facade as well.”

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 Orangeburg Town Square, 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!

Oddly enough, the two cannons on the square cannot be the ones related to the recapture of Orangburg during the Revolution (See also the All for Liberty entry here at Sciway.) There was only one cannon on loan from General Greene, who was nearby, an event amply described in any number of eye-witness accounts and histories. The cannon on loan also presumably did not have the cascabel knocked off like both of them on the square. They are most likely cast iron Civil War guns and had been disabled to avoid capture by the Yankees.
