South Carolina Time Warp

Nostalgic for a time gone by, we present two homes from Orangeburg, South Carolina that are frozen in time.  Enjoy.

This Orangeburg home was built in 1954.  The living room features wallpaper, green carpet, and green drapes.

Our second featured Orangeburg home was built in 1973.  Green and blue were popular colors back in the day.
