Gaffney, Part 2 - Limestone College And June H. Carr | Palmetto Places


Founded in 1845, Limestone College was originally a Baptist seminary, and was the first institution of higher learning for women in South Carolina. Today, it is a four year, coeducational liberal arts college. 

The town of Gaffney evolved from a get-away mecca for well-to-do tourists, to a textile mill town. The evolution of the town can be seen in the pictures taken by photographer June H. Carr.
