#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
