Historic Kitchings Mill Library Moved to Wagener

From the Aiken Standard:  The historic Kitchings Mill Library moved to its permanent home in Wagener on Thursday following a two-year effort by Aiken County officials and residents to preserve the structure.  Residents stopped their cars as police escorts drove by, and some even took pictures of the large J.E. Oswalt and Sons truck carrying the library through the heart of Wagener and down Park Street.
