Winnsboro Post Office
South Carolina’s State Stone, Blue Granite (often called Winnsboro Blue Granite), was quarried from the Kincaid-Anderson Quarry and exported all over the east coast to build and decorate scores of buildings. The quarry was the site of Fairfield County’s biggest industry until it closed in 1946. Yet the stone was not used for this brick post office built in 1936 by the US Treasury. Winnsboro also boasts the longest running clock in the US!
