Lee County Historical Society Meeting Tuesday


Bishopville, SC

Mike Bedenbaugh, executive director of The Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation will be the featured speaker for the next meeting of the Lee County Historical Society.

"A core tenant of the Palmetto Trust’s mission is to advocate passionately and professionally on the behalf of small S.C. towns and the preservation of their architectural heritage.

The Trust stays abreast of the sites and properties in need of preserving, like those listed as South Carolina’s Most Endangered Properties, and advocates on behalf of groups facing controversial preservation issues often providing statewide support and resources to halt development and preserve significant historic architecture."

There is no admission charge for the 7pm meeting. Society members and the general public are invited to attend. The meeting will be held at the Cotton Museum located at 121 West Cedar Lane in Bishopville. (803) 484-4497

Bishopville High School was recently placed on Palmetto Trust’s Most Endangered SC Properties and we strongly encourage all the members of 'Friends of Bishopville High School', a grassroots advocacy group working towards the preservation and reuse of the Bishopville High School building located at 600 North Main Street, to attend.
