Hearing Held Monday Evening in Edgefield
The Edgefield Historic Preservation Association held a demonstration, July 8, 2015 outside a meeting of the Piedmont Technical College Foundation Board in Saluda, S.C. The purpose of the demonstration was to alert the board members of the importance of saving the historic Adams Cotton Warehouse (see article Advertiser July 1, 2015 and online in Op-Ed) in Edgefield from destruction. The warehouse stands on a portion of the Piedmont Tech campus. Seen among the demonstrators was Edgefield’s mayor, Ken Durham, as well as Thomas Herlong and George Thornton (Board members), who presented the demonstrators’ concerns to the board.
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Monday, July 13, at 5:30 PM in Edgefield County Council Chambers on Jeter Street.
