Freely sharing the preservation of S.C. history and heritage – one address at a time…..
Periodically you receive emails from RootsandRecall.com, to keep you informed of some of the website’s features and to encourage you to sphere-head linking the website to institutions and organizations – libraries, museums, etc. Someone appears to be listening because R&R’s external links have doubled in the past month, thanks! Or was this because of R&R’s recent sponsorship of the S.C. Archives and History Preservation Conference? It doesn’t matter, R&R is pleased people are acting.
Three recent features and updates to R&R’s pages are noteworthy. Examples of just how people continue to contribute, preserving their memories @R&R.com
- Showcasing what has been lost but not forgotten!
- Cooper Farm – Laurens Co., SC
- Linking information and names found on maps!
- Updating information and images on endangered properties!
- Boazman House – Newberry Co., SC
Judging from the 1980s images, taken by the S.C. Dept. of Archives and History, of the Boazman farmhouse in Newberry Co., one would have assumed “incorrectly” the house had been demolished well before 2017. To the contrary, the next generation in the family took notice of the architectural features peculiar to the house and for that matter that section of S.C. and has thus preserved it. R&R was so thankful to have received these new images and know the house, marked on R&R’s founder’s membership page as one of his 100 favorites was still intact.
