J.T. Brogdon Store — Manning, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Clarendon County  |  J.T. Brogdon Store

This shuttered store in a rural corner of Manning was likely established in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century by local farmer and merchant James Thomas “J.T.” Brogdon. A 1914 copy of the Insurance Press mentions the store under its “What is Burning” section, stating that the store suffered a loss of $8,000, presumably in a fire. The store was rebuilt and likely operated by J.T. Brogdon’s son, J.T. Brogdon, Jr., following Brogdon, Sr.’s death in 1945. At some point a gas pump, complete with an awning for cars, was added to the store as a modern convenience.

My Pappy’s store, I used to go treasure hunting in here as a kid. I found so much cool old stuff. Old coins and old records in the juke box and so much more. I’d spend hours listening to my grandfather’s stories about when this was the place to be. The grandkids called him Pappy but everyone else called him Big Jack (I was lil’ Jack), he ran the store until he passed in 1981. I have images of newspaper advertisements for the store from 1919 and 1920. As well as images of my grandfather from his early days of running the store if you are interested.
