Atlantic Coast Lumber Company and The Georgetown
& Western Railroad's
"Last Vestige of an Early 20th Century Dream"
A Shop from the Andrews, South Carolina Roundhouse
South Carolina is in danger of loosing one of it's most important historical
treasures. The last remaining vestige of the Atlantic Coast
Lumber Company and the Georgetown & Western Railroad's operation in
Georgetown County is rapidly deteriorating. At the turn-of-the-century
the Atlantic Coast Lumber Company grew into the low-country's greatest
industry and was the largest lumber operation east of the Mississippi.
This entrepreneurial endeavor saved the SC mid-coastal area after the failure
of plantation society. Pictured above is the last building of this
phenomenal lumber and railroad operation.
