Clarendon County Courthouse, In Manning | History Of SC Slide Collection

Clarendon County Courthouse, Manning, after a tornado in 1903 had swept through the town, uprooting trees and blowing the roofs off most of the stores on Main Street. Clarendon County was organized in 1855 out of the old Sumter District. Manning, the county seat, was named for Governor Richard I. Manning, one of six governors from the Manning family to serve the state (1824-1826, see Richard I. Manning III).
