In a recent special edition o
the Columbia State nearly an en
tire section was devoted t
sketches of the principal town
in South Carolina, showing . thei
growth in the past quarter cen

pride to the-citizens of Fairfieb
county to find that. Winnsbor
compares most favorably v:it'
other towns of its size througi
out the State. It is a-significan
fact that of the progress mad
by Fairfield's county seat in tu
past twenty five years most ha
occurred in the last decade. An
the.town is progressing today a

This proves conclusively the
Winnsboro can not only boast c
an historic past but also of
most promising future. A con
