Lunch & Learn: Spartanburg's Courthouses

Brad Steinecke with the Spartanburg County Public Libraries will present a history of Spartanburg County’s courthouses, from the first hewn-timber courthouse of 1789 to the 1958 modernist facility currently in use. Based off of a recent exhibit at the downtown library, this presentation will include an overview of the architects, stylistic choices, cornerstone laying ceremonies, and growing pains of each structure. From purely utilitarian to dramatic and visionary, Spartanburg’s courthouses set the precedent for our next courthouse, currently in the design stages and expected to be unveiled in the months to come.

Lunch & Learn: The Piedmont Farmer

12:30 PM12:30

Lunch & Learn: The Piedmont Farmer

The 2018 Lunch & Learn Series welcomes Dr. Phil Racine as he shares the journals of David Golightly Harris are a unique daily record of a fifteen-year span in the life of a Piedmont South Carolina farm family that owned ten slaves and cultivated one hundred acres. Documents from small slaveholders are few, making these journals an invaluable source of information about the agricultural routines of a small antebellum farm as well as a revealing commentary on regional and national affairs, slavery, education, religion, family relationships, and community life.

An especially compelling feature of this book is its inclusion of writings by Harris's wife, Emily, who took over the journal when he went to war for the Confederacy in 1862. Recounting the trials of managing the farm and raising seven children in her husband's absence, Emily's words offer poignant insights into the daily struggles of those who tended the home front during the Civil War.

Lunch & Learn: Tales of a Cosmic Possum

Tales of a Cosmic Possum,
presented by author Sheila Ingle

Friday, January 26, 2018
12:30pm
Chapman Cultural Center

Sheila Ingle’s husband John was brought up in Ingle Holler in Union, South Carolina, with eight other Ingle families. They worked together in the mills, shared their gardens, attended church, and enjoyed the playing and singing of the songs from the Grand Ole Opry. When five of the brothers went off to war, those who couldn’t fight took care of their families. The Ingles stuck together, just like they were taught in the Appalachian hills of Erwin, Tennessee. Love of God, love of family, and love of country were modelled in each home. In fact, one year Make Ingle put his sons and grandsons together to build Hillside Baptist Church. Adults kept up with the newspapers and the radios; world happenings were important. Any type of sickness brought a barrage of soup and cornbread, because children still had to eat. On those twenty acres, the children played in the creek, cowboys and Indians, and hide-and-seek. They built their own wagons and sleds to race down the hill on the dry, hickory leaves. All the boys learned to shoot a .22 caliber, and John’s mother Lois could light a match with her shots. Living in Ingle Holler was home, where each one was accepted.
