Located in the Red Hill community of Edgefield, farmer and merchant Luther Jack McClendon built this general store in front of his home. McClendon was born September 12, 1877 and died October 28, 1960. His store operated during the early part of the twentieth century and was later used as a hunt club.
At age 23, McClendon married Sunie Elizabeth Thomas and together they had seven children. At least one grandson, Robert Bruce McClendon, Jr., was born in the family home.
As you can see, we do not know much about the McClendon Store yet. Can you help us document this historic site? If so, please contact the South Carolina Picture Project. Thank you!
