Local History – The South Carolina Room

This reference room is located inside the main location of the Library System in Moncks Corner. The materials located here are collected based on their subject matter, primarily Berkeley County and South Carolina. From local tales and biographies, to family-published cemetery records, to lists of soldiers from South Carolina in the American Revolution; the collection is both specific and broad; fiction and reference.

The microfilm collection consists of: the United States Census, South Carolina; South Carolina State Standard Death Certificates; and The Berkeley Democrat and The Berkeley Independent, local newspapers (see catalog for specific years and/or volumes).

No items in the room may be checked out as many items in this room are one-of-a-kind. Often there are additional copies in the library system which can be checked out.

The South Carolina Room is accessible during the Main Library’s hours of operation.

  • The Jimmy Cornelius Stone (1938–2010) Collection of photographs and ephemera are the result of decades of avid local history and photo collecting. This collection includes photographs taken by Mr. Stone as well. His hobby has provided us snapshots of Berkeley County, primarily Moncks Corner, then and now.
