The Commission’s archives are housed in the old Darlington County Jail. The top two floors are where we keep the majority of our files and artifacts, and every time I climb those steep steps, I start to feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I get so excited about what I might discover in those rows and rows of filing cabinets that my heart starts to beat faster and faster.
As a child, I remember as a child, the magic that Christmas seemed to bring. How the air seemed lighter, lights appeared much brighter, the general attitude around town seemed more pleasant.
