S.F. Singletary Store — Sandridge, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Berkeley County  |  S.F. Singletary Store

This abandoned store and gas station in rural Berkeley County once served travelers along United States Highway 176. Stephen Fredrick Singletary and his wife, Mae, opened the store in 1931. The store, with its pressed tin sign advertising the owner as well as one of its undoubtedly most popular wares – Coca Cola – was run by the Singletary family until the death of S.F. – or Fred, as he was known – in 1988. Since then, the building has fallen into disrepair. Mae Singletary died a month after her 100th birthday in 2010.

An early map exists showing a railroad from Mount Holly on the North Eastern RR, headed northwest passing just north of Long Ridge and passing through Sand Ridge then to the east of Roadville to terminate at Eutawville, SC. Vance’s Ferry on the Santee helps to date the map. Other locations are “Trial” east and just below the Santee and “Crawl” east of the Canal and directly east of Trial.

East of Charleston is “Knoxville”.

West of Charleston the stations are Stono, Johns Island and Rantowles. South of Rantowles is “Wideawake” on the river west bank and “Beckett” on the east bank. This is the original Wideawake visited by the man who cannoed along the coast line in a “paper canoe” from North Carolina to Georgia.

My opinion is that this railroad was proposed, but never built.

I date the map as circa 1885 as the Green Pond, Walterboro & Branchville is not shown and was built circa 1886.
