The Society program Sept. 26, 2010, included slides and an informative lecture on state and local railroads. About 75 persons attended the program in the Kershaw County Fine Arts Center auditorium to hear remarks by Rodger Strop, retired director of the S.C. Department of Archives and History.

Dr. Stroup is the current chairman of the SC Archives and History Foundation and a volunteer at the South Carolina State Museum.  He is also the curator of the South Carolina Railroad Museum and a certified conductor on the museum’s Rockton, Rion & Western Railroad.
