Trio Post Office – Williamsburg County, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Williamsburg County Photos  |  Trio Post Office

The small town of Trio is located in Williamsburg County, just outside of Andrews. Many thanks to Jill Moore of Georgetown took this picture in the summer of 2004.

She writes: “My husband and I were out riding our motorcycle one Saturday and saw a sign for Trio (pronounced with a long I). I had seen this sign many times, but had not seen this little town. So we drove through and the old post office caught my eye. I felt it represented Trio because the town is slowly dying. I understand that Trio use to be a thriving little train community, but the trains are gone now, and the town is reverting into just a few buildings at the cross roads.

“These little towns remind me of what use to be and puts my imagination on overdrive. What ghosts are wondering the town? Does one still hear the train whistles? Were there cattle pens for holding animals for shipping to market? Where was the general store? Did the general store have a pickle barrel, and sell boiled peanuts and RC Colas? These are some of the things that I think about when I see an old, dying town.”

I think it used to be the Bank of Trio too. I go by there all the time. I will pay close attention the next time I do …

My father was born in Trio before the stock market crashed in 1929, my grandfather worked at this post office and was one of the few that owned a vehicle to deliver the mail. He lost his job after the Post office was closed, and I assume Trio started to die out as little towns do.
