So far our crew from the Laurens County and Clinton Museums had visited several locations in Cross Hill (Part 1, Part 2). Now we were on to our last stop, a true ghost town.
While Cross Hill is not yet a ghost town, Mountville has reached that stage. I hesitated to add it to my list because there is still an active post office, a couple of active churches, and I have cousins and friends with Mountville mailing addresses. It is still a viable community. However, any semblance of a town is long gone.
We pulled up to what is left of the center of commerce – three lone buildings just off of Highway 72.
All that remains is the grange building, a warehouse, and an old store front. We took some time to explore as best we could.
