History

Celebrating the history of the Battle of Musgrove Mill.

of Laurens County

T

he Cherokee Indians were the original inhabitants of Laurens County. John Duncan (a native of Aberdeen, Scotland) was the first white settler to inhabit the area. Duncan arrived in 1752 from Pennsylvania and settled along a creek in the northeastern section of the county, between present-day Clinton and Whitmire. Scottish-Irish immigrants out of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia became the predominant settlers in this area. During the Revolutionary War, the area that would soon become Laurens County was the site of four significant battles, including Musgrove Mill on Aug. 18, 1780.

LaurensCounty.org

Today, the Musgrove Mill State Historic Site marks the location of this battle. The visitors center at the park documents the role South Carolina patriots played in winning American independence. The General Assembly passed an act on March 12, 1785, whereby six counties were established out of the Old 96 District. Laurens County was one of those counties. The town of Laurens (known as Laurensville well into the 19th century) became the county seat. Laurens County derived its name from a patriot, warrior and statesman, the Honorable Henry Laurens of Charleston. Henry Laurens was president of the Continen-

Pioneer Day.


HISTORY tal Congress during the Revolutionary War and later served as ambassador to France to secure aid in helping the colonies fight for their independence. By 1820, Laurens was known for its tailor-made clothes. Andrew Johnson, the 17th president of the United States, came to Laurens in 1824 and established a tailor shop in the town square. By 1840, the area was booming with establishments, including medical practitioners; a fancy confectionery and fruit store; carriage, buggy and wagon shops; tailor shops; building contractors; flour and corn mills; and 81 registered whiskey distilleries. By the end of the 19th century, textiles were becoming very important in Laurens County and the Upstate. The Laurens Cotton Mill was established in 1895. Mercer Silas Bailey built the first cotton mill in Clinton in 1896, and both Lydia Mill and Watts Mill were established in 1902. However, over the last several

Pioneer Day.

decades, textiles have been displaced by a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, manufacturing, research firms, automobile parts suppliers and others. During the 20th century, Laurens County gradually grew, remaining predominantly rural in character. Between 1900 and 1950, the county grew from

37,382 residents to 46,974 – a number that has grown to approximately 70,000 in 2010 (according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s QuickFacts). With its outstanding location, diversified industrial base and unique quality of life, there is no doubt Laurens County will continue to grow and prosper well into the future.

EDUCATION

Scenes from the Presbyterian College Campus.

HIGHER EDUCATION Presbyterian College is a four-year, private, coeducational college accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. A highly selective national liberal arts college, PC is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and has been recognized in national publications and in the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll as a college that “gets it right” based on students’ and graduates’ contributions to society. Founded in 1880 as Clinton College, PC is located on 240 acres in Clinton. In addition to winning prestigious national and international scholarships, including a Rhodes Scholar, Rotary Scholars, Pew Fellows and a National Science Foundation Fellowship, PC graduates are servant leaders in their careers, their communities and their churches. Small classes are taught by a dedicated faculty — the vast majority of whom hold their terminal degrees. Six faculty members have been honored as South Carolina’s Professor of the Year — the most of any college or university in the state. The Blue Hose athletics program is now a member of the Big South Conference and competes in NCAA Division I with 15 varsi-

ty sports for men and women. The new Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy opened on Aug. 16, 2010, with its inaugural class of nearly 80 students. The four-year Pharm.D. program now serves approximately 300 students. Satellite operations of the University of South Carolina Union at Laurens began in 1983 with classes offered at the local junior high school. All classes are now held at their new location, 507 N. Harper St., Suite L, in Laurens. USCU-L is especially attractive to adult students who return either to complete a degree, to take classes that their careers require or to enhance their knowledge of various academic subjects. Afternoon and evening courses are the mainstay of the curriculum. In the face of skyrocketing college costs, some high school graduates also begin their undergraduate studies at USCU-L. Through its concurrent enrollment program, the school also offers qualified high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to begin their college coursework at a reduced fee before graduation. They may choose from a variety of classes in the humanities and the social and natural sciences, which can be applied to associate or baccalaureate degree programs.

For teachers in area school districts, USCU-L is a source of recertification or advanced degree classes. The school also serves as a registration and testing site for many telecommunications classes originating at the university’s main campus in Columbia. Piedmont Technical College became the eighth of the 16 member institutions in the South Carolina Technical Education System when it was established in 1966 to serve Laurens, Abbeville, Edgefield, Greenwood, McCormick, Newberry and Saluda counties. Those seven counties represent the largest geographic area served by any technical college in the state. Piedmont’s main campus is located on a 65-acre plot on Emerald Road in Greenwood. The Laurens County Center of Piedmont Tech moved to the Laurens County Higher Education Center on Medical Ridge Road in Clinton in 2002 after more than 11 years at their East Main Street location in Laurens.

training, soft skills training, WorkKeys testing and preparation, résumé writing and behavioral interviewing skills. Renovation began in January 2012 that transformed the 13,000-square-foot former Honda of Laurens building into the new 24,300-square foot Center for Advanced Manufacturing. The Center for Advanced Manufacturing came about thanks to a partnership among Piedmont Technical College, the PTC Foundation, county and city governments, Laurens County Development Corporation and local industry. The facility was initially planned to provide readySC, a division of the S.C. Technical College System, with a space to meet ZF Group’s initial training needs in collaboration with PTC industrial faculty. However, industry leaders throughout the county saw the center’s potential to benefit their operations. The CAM houses CNC labs, CMM labs, a welding lab and classrooms which will benefit industry and the residents of Laurens County for years to come by providing the local workforce with a means for upgrading their work skills with relevant technology-based training. Laurens County Development Corporation and local industry collaborated for this center. • Piedmont Technical College’s Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM) in Laurens has been entrusted with $1 million in ZEISS CALYPSO Metrology Software and Support by Carl Zeiss Indus-
