Rent on Wateree Lake summer home sites is doubled by power co.

During the past ten years there has been a lot of building activity along the Wateree Lake above Camden, which is serving as a summer resort for many business men, and their families. The homes are owned by not only citizens of Camden but also of Kershaw, Lancaster, Winnsboro and other points. Winnsboro people have quite a large settlement on the Western side of the lake opposite Liberty Hill.

Many Camden citizens have homes from about a mile above the dam on up to the Liberty Hill section. Quite a few have leased points where they keep their boats and plan to erect a summer cottage at some future date.

These points have been renting for $20 a year. The land is owned by the Duke Power Company.

Two houses on DeKalb Street being dismantled

The large house on the corner of DeKalb and Mill Streets is being dismantled and it is said an oil company will erect a filling station on the lot. This old house was known as the Turner home. Si Turner, a well known citizen of Camden lived there for many years. It was later owned by the Elliott estate.

Another corner home being dismantled is on the corner of DeKalb and Church Street, next to the Redfearn Motor Co. That house was erected by the late John McLain, a well-known…barber, who along with his father and brothers served…Camden for many years.

DeKalb Street is becoming more a commercial street and one by one residences on it are being dismantled to make room for the expanding business area of Camden. Many familiar landmarks on this street have given way to commercial buildings during the past 25 years.
