Old Country Store in a South Carolina Railroad Town

C.E. Moseley Store | Williamsburg County South Carolina | c. 1921

This store was built by C.E. Moseley along the railroad tracks in 1921. It would serve locals & passengers of the Atlantic Coastal Line until 1943 (or 1952 depending on which local you ask) at the quiet crossroads of Salters. Just across the tracks from here are numerous other historic buildings, including an antebellum depot, and an impressive 2-story home from the 1800’s. Standing here at this crossroads really takes you back in time. I was lucky enough to be there as the train passed. 

The small community of people who remain here in Salters refer to themselves affectionately as “Saltines.”
