City Hall (former) Painting – Georgetown SC

Description

The federal Civil Works Administration (CWA) conducted much work in and around Georgetown, South Carolina during the early years of the New Deal. The Georgetown Times wrote: “Started by the CWA and completed by the FERA, the paint job which was put on the old City Hall at the foot of Screven Street has rejuvenated the ancient landmark.” The old City Hall, erected in 1843 on Front Street, is home to the Town Clock.
