The Laurens County Courthouse | History Of SC Slide Collection

Laurens, carved out of the Ninety Six District in 1785 and named after Henry Laurens (see Henry Laurens), was, like much of the backcountry, settled by Scotch-Irish in the pre-Revolutionary period. The Laurens County courthouse, shown here in 1905, was built in 1838, and remodeled in 1911.
