Top Ten Things to Memorialize

 

#10…Elmo’s Memorial Crab Shack

So many of the elderly ladies have gone on to that great stage & pole in the sky

 

#9 … The Laurens Plaza Memorial Shopping Center

We had some Big Sales there, prior to the floods of the 70’s!

 

#8 … The WLBG Memorial Mini-Van

Many a live remote broadcast came from there before it’s unfortunate misplacement.

 

#7 … The Watts Memorial Mill

It still saddens me to drive by and see the ruins of that old mill

 

#6 …The Holmes Memorial Tunnel, from the Octagon House to the Historic Laurens County Court House. Let’s memorialize this with a plexi-glass roof where it passes under the River so we can look up at the little fish at play & the happy Sunday boat riders.

 

#5  …The Curry’s Lake Memorial Bowling Alley

Many a youth picked up extra change in the summer setting up duck pens there

 

#4 … The Ekom Beach Memorial Skating Rink

What a great memory – a sunny beach and a skating rink, side by side.

 

#3 …The Regal-Dale Memorial Dairy outside Ware Shoals

The original place for Happy Cows!

 

#2 … The Whitmire Memorial Mill Village

From the days when Whitmire was known as “The Pearl of the Piedmont.”

 

# 1 …The Torrington Memorial Highway

We need to memorialize the days when ball bearings were king in Laurens County
