Saving The Argent No. 7 Train: Preserving A Community Treasure

In honor of the Living By The Rails exhibit, learn how Hardeeville local Vickie Edenfield and a group of community members saved the historic Argent Lumber No. 7 locomotive from demolition. The Argent Lumber Company was a well-known logging operation located in Hardeeville, S.C. The three-foot gauge steam engines were wood burning and operated a twelve-mile main line from Hardeeville to the Savannah River. Vickie will talk about her love for this train and how they were able to preserve its history for future generations. Event is free. morrisheritagecenter.org.
