Today in Anderson History

February 12, 1903
It is a sign of the passage of time. Old buildings and homes are demolished to make way for newer structures. This was even true in the “good old days,” when, on February 12, 1903, the Leverette Osborne House was torn down. The house was located on West Whitner Street at the crossing of the Charleston & West Carolina Railroad. 

During the Civil War, Osborne had a tan-yard on his property. After his death, the Osborne family sold the property to the railroad. A brick freight depot, belonging to the Charleston & West Carolina Railroad was built on the site. Appleton Mill is not far from the depot. When the Osborne House was demolished, it was nearly 60 years old and was one of the oldest houses in Anderson.

    Social publics are groups of people united by common ideas, ideology or hobby. Technically it is a page created by some user. This user can invite other users to their public and join their news and updates.
