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 Complex
Early 1900's


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.
