More Old Photos of Pendleton South Carolina

This page is a continuation of Pendleton Old Photos

It was getting quite long with nearly 50 pictures and I thought it was about time to start a second part as I still have more photos to share.

Pendleton folks of all ages have been so generous with their treasured photographs and it has brought much pleasure to a lot of people. It is my sincere hope that the first lens will continue to be viewed and enjoyed as well as this new one.

I am continuing to add more Old Photos as they are shared with me and am adding them to both sites so please keep checking both Pendleton Old Photos and Pendleton Old Photos 2. Thanks.


Note: In 2015, Pendleton will celebrate its 225th anniversary. There are all kinds of special events being planned throughout the whole year.

Old Pickens House

in Pendleton South Carolina

Tim Drake, a local historian and active member of the Pendleton Historic Foundation, had this to say about this house.

The Old Pickens House was built around the year 1800 and was one of Pendleton's earliest plantation houses. It was supposed to be almost identical to "Mount Jolly", the late 1700's home of my uncle Zachariah Taliaferro (which stood on the present day Simpson Research Farm). It originally had a long front piazza, and the classical portico pictured here was added in the 1830's (about the same time one was added to Ft. Hill). The double front doors, which led into separate rooms, give a hint of its early age because it was built before the center hall plan became popular in this area. It was included in the HABS survey of Pendleton that was done in the 1930s, but they just made floor-plan diagrams and took no picture. I don't know the name of the original builder, but it was later owned/lived in by descendants of General Andrew Pickens. I think it was called "The Poplars" or "Poplar Lane".

The Quattlebaums Lived In The Old Pickens House

Shelby Quattlebaum Shares This Story of this old home

After brothers Don and Richard Quattlebaum graduated from Clemson University, they purchased this 256 acre farm from Mr. and Mrs. J. Monroe Tinsley. The Tinsleys previously had a dairy farm and that was exactly what the Quattlebaums wanted to do along with their wives, Opal and Shelby. They named it Greenglow Farm and in 1956 began their Dairy Farm.

Richard had recently returned from the Army so he and Shelby were living in a mobile home on the farm while Don and Opal lived in the big house. Both women were pregnant at this time with their first children.

On New Year's Eve 1959 the house caught on fire and in 45 minutes nearly everything they owned was gone up in flames. The house was built of pine and the fire was started in the attic from the wiring or a squirrel. Both families as well as Don and Richard's mother had their belongings in the house.

Thirty One Days after the house burned, Don and Opal had a daughter, Donna. They lived with Opal's parents until one of the tenant houses on the farm was remodeled.

Three and a half months after the house burned Richard and Shelby had a daughter, Tammy. They continued to live on the farm in a larger mobile home.

In 1968 both brothers built homes on the farm. Don and Opal were blessed with twin boys in 1969. Both brothers and their families continued to farm until the dairy herd was sold in 1979. 214 Acres of the farm land was later sold to Senator T. Ed Garrison.

Both families continue to live on part of the farm in the houses they built in 1968.

Thank you Shelby for sharing this story.

Pictures of Blue Ridge Esso and an Old Photo of Farmers Hall

Jackie dated these photos by the presence of telephone poles and the roads. She said that the road around the town square was paved in 1928. Thank you, Jackie for sharing these wonderful old photographs with us. Do you have some old Pendleton Photos that you would like to share?

Jim Smith Shares Some Family History

and information on above photo. Thank you, Jim

According to Jim Smith, the persons in the 1936 photo above are left to right:

James Dawson Smith III, H.L. Crenshaw and Dexter Gossett

Jim also shared the following history of their family business. In 1919 James Dawson Smith II and 2 partners established Blue Ridge Oil Co. on the square in downtown Pendleton. In prior years this had been the old Cherry Hotel lot and at one time where Cobb's Hotel had been located. A filling station was built and then in 1920 Smith II became the sole owner.

A couple of years later, Smith II became the Distributor for the Standard Oil Co. of J.J. as well as being owner and operator of the filling station. He died in 1945. James Dawson Smith III had joined his father in the business after graduating from the Citadel in 1934 and was active in the operation until his death in 1986. James Dawson Smith IV joined his father in the business after graduating from the Citadel in 1959 and remained there until he closed the business in 2001.

After several name changes Standard Oil of J.J. became Exxon and the three Smith generations operated the Distributorship and Service Station continually for some 80 years.

Each Smith (II, III, and IV) was proud to live in and be a part of Pendleton. They greatly enjoyed and appreciated their friends and customers over the many years.

This building now houses Avenue of Oaks Antiques and if you haven't been in there, I highly recommend it. It is a real treat.

Do you remember a road in front of Farmers Hall?

Jacky Manley told me that he knows the name of the road that used to run directly in front of the Farmers Hall but he won't tell me. Every time I see him he asked me if I have found the answer yet.

Come on, Folks, help me out here! Does anyone remember the name of that road? I remember the road but haven't a clue about its name.

Frances Barnette emailed me and said that Calvin remembered that the street was called "Short Street".

Original 25 cent script note

Issued by Pendleton Manufacturing Co.

This is an original 25 cent script note owned by Jerry Sloan Jr. It was issued by Pendleton Manufacturing Co. as wages to be used at the Company Store for goods manufactured by them or for debts due them. It was signed by B.F. Sloan on Feb. 11, 1861. B.F. Sloan is Jerry Sloan Jr.'s Great Great Grandfather.

John Sitton added some interesting information about Pendleton Manufacturing Co.

LaFrance, was formerly know as Autun, home of The Pendleton Manufacturing Co., the state's oldest cotton mill still in operation. Ironically, I now live a stone's throw from Autun, where My Grandfather, Eugene N was born. My Great Granddad owned and operated the mill at Autun. Pendleton Oil Mill was begun on it's present site, where AJ and John B. already operated a steam cotton gin, in part to facilitate a steady supply of cotton to the mill at Autun. See:

Lilly and Willis Newton

Lilly and Willis Newton built and lived in the home that Hugh and Barbara Dyar now live on 626 Medlock Circle in Pendleton SC

Martha Seawright sent this info from her sister, Nell Reeves 10/17/08

Nell has viewed the lens on which Lilly Newton is shown. First, the name in the heading is mispelled. It is spelled Lilly not Lity. Nell says that Willis was working on the roof of their house about 1921 when he stepped on a nail and died of lockjaw. Lilly built the house on Medlock Street after his death.

Sybil Miller Shares Two Wonderful Old Photos

Her Dad was the manager of the movie theatre

Sybil writes:

One photo is my Dad in the projection room at the movie theatre in Pendleton. On the back of the picture is his name and the year 1940. My dad was Arthur Wilkes Miller, but tagged with the nickname “Bruno” from the time he was a kid – that’s how most everybody knew him. He was born in 1913, so he was about 27 years old when the picture was made. From what I understand, he worked at the theatre for a while, then left and came back several years later as manager. I was in the second and third grades in Pendleton Elementary School during that time – around 1953-54.

The other picture is from Pendleton Elem School – Mrs. Rush’s 3rd grade in 1954. I’m on the second row in one of the chairs – second from the left. We moved back to Clemson after my third grade, so I don’t remember who most of them are. If you post the picture – maybe some of the other students can identify themselves and some of the others.

Sybil

Thank you so much for sharing these, Sybil. I have such fond memories of the theatre and remember one time in particular. We all went to see a Western one Saturday morning and when the movie was over we went outside to wait for our parents and there they were sitting in a Green Studebaker that they had just purchased. We were so excited.

Anne Lewis Wheeler's father's home in Pendleton SC - Home of Richard Lewis and also home of John Earle Lewis

old home in pendleton sc
old home in pendleton sc

Anne Gaillard Lewis Wheeler: This was my father’s home in Pendleton, SC. My father was Richard Lewis and his parents were John Earle Lewis and Anna Harriett Smith. The house burned July 1919, when my father was 22. After the fire destroyed their house, the family moved to Cornelia, GA and that portion of the Lewis Family Plantation was sold to the Clemson family who later founded Clemson College.

My great, great grandfather, Col. Richard Lewis (1765-1831 or 1832) purchased a large tract of land in Pendleton. One section (1040 acres) was purchased from John C. Calhoun and another section (1237 acres) was purchased from the family of General Andrew Pickens in the early 1800’s. Col. Lewis divided up the property among his children. My grandfather’s house, pictured here, was supposedly close to the Old Stone Church Cemetery.

      I grew up in Campobella plantation house. My grandparents are Lucy and Bill Swaney on this site. There is not anything left of the house. They tore it down and built a smaller home when their children grew up. The newer home burned down and all of it is gone. It was odd to see them dressed up because my grandpa always wore overalls.

      Oh, my word, at the memories that just rushed through my mind!!! I babysat for Jim Smith, Jr. beginning when there were only three little girls. When I married and moved away at the age of 20, I was keeping five of them! Beautiful family! I remember pulling into that station with my first car, a 1966 Mustanghow proud I was to be driving my own careven though my father owned the title and the reigns around my waist, which reeled me in repeatedly! LOLMy mother lived on the waters of Portman Shoals as a little girl and my father took us fishing near the dam when I was a childI caught my first fish there! Nothing better during an afternoon of fishing than peanut butter on a saltine cracker!The BC Edens homePendleton has never been the same with that house no longer on the corner!Boscobel Lakemany afternoons spent therethat is where I totally scared myself to death trying to rid myself of my fear of heights AND waterafter the third time down that slide, I gave up and resigned myself to the fact that I just can't do everything the big kids do! JI remember the Crenshaw sisters wellI loved them all but Eva was the one I was closest to.I well remember Shelbys story of the old house, the birth of the children and the homes they built there together. My father, Don and Richard were friends. I even remember Shelby and Richard when they were dating and their wedding. Later, Shelby and I worked together at Clemson University.The old theater is where I saw my first movieThe Song Of The South with Uncle Remus. My grandmother took meI was four years old and sang Zippa Dee Do Dah until I drove my mother to distraction!!Thanks so much for the memories this morningit is always great to remember my hometown!!!

      beautiful. I have always find old picture interesting. And that photo of Lilly and Willis Newton? Well Willis looks like a funny guy, but Lilly had a matron look, she must have been the one running the house lol. Thank you for sharing this bit of history

      Nancy, I don't care how often I see this pictures, I love them. I am sure I am somewhere in that crowd at the Christmas parade. And, I remember those band uniforms. Candace Veale attended PUMC and we were Sunday School classmates. Man, I miss those days.

      In the latest photo in the band room, I see Nancy Jo Campbell, Jerry Moore, Jimmy Palmer and not sure about the second girl. Is that Tippi Welborn?

      I recognize lots of classmates and myself in that band picture! fun! I think majorettes are Nancy Jo Campbell, Aileen Smith and Janet Meehan on front. Linda Anthony, Joan Hopkins and me on the back row. Brenda Frye was a majorette, too, I thought, but I don't see her there.I think Jerry Moore maybe front left of band.

      [in reply to Donna Roper] Thank you so much, Donna. I will make those corrections. We sure do miss you! Please let me know if you want to add any information to any of the photos. Notice the world map at the bottom of the first Photo lens and see who all has viewed these. Amazing!

      Great work, Nancy! On the Red Shirts Reunion picture of the Aiken guards, the gun carriage carrying the cannon actually reads Peacemaker, not just "peace"-- this same gun carriage is in the Ag'l museum. Also, the SC Postcards (Anderson County) book is not out of print. I know it's for sale at the Anderson County Museum.

      I love the Quattlebaum story, and the pictures of the old house and also the Esso station! Keep on with these wonderful stories and pictures. Looking at them should be a requirement of the students at the elementary, middle and high schools.
